Village Green or Commons?

On summer days we can be grateful for the shade of a beautiful tree. Back when East Rush was developing, our forefathers had the foresight to create a place in the hamlet where people could find shade. It was a gathering place. This place still exists. You go past it, but you may not have given it much thought. This beautiful but small green space with trees was once known as the Village Green or Commons. Those enjoying a pizza on the patio of Montesano’s appreciate it for the shade and bit of a buffer from the traffic noise. The trees add beauty to the landscape no matter what the season. It is the location of the Rush Bicentennial clock, placed there in 2018. The addition of flower beds has added to its appeal. These are planted and maintained by a dedicated group of townspeople of the Beautification Committee's Summer Garden Project
