Watermark at Logan Square Residents Earn Garden of Distinction Award from Pennsylvania Horticultural Society

A small group of residents at The Watermark at Logan Square have transformed a 4th floor terrace in the middle of Center City into a vibrant green space. Their efforts have earned them the Garden of Distinction Award in the 2018 Pennsylvania Horticultural Society Gardening and Greening Contest. They topped more than 300 entrants.

The PHS noted the success of the community’s Garden Club to enhance an urban environment. In fact, more than 430 residents who call The Watermark at Logan Square home have access to the terrace for activities and social gatherings. They are drawn to it as a meeting space because of its beauty and reflection of the seasons, with its changing flowers and greenery at the hands of the Garden Club.

Spencer Anderson, president of The Watermark at Logan Square Garden Club, accepted the Garden of Distinction Award at a reception hosted at PHS on November 7th. He received a sign to place in The Watermark at Logan Square garden and tickets to the 2018 PHS Philadelphia Flower Show, “Flower Power.”

Throughout the winter months, members of the community’s Garden Club keep busy by sharing their expertise through various courses, like flower arranging, offered through the Watermark at Logan Square’s Watermark University. Watermark University offers both residents and area seniors opportunities for mind, body and spiritual enhancement with a long and varied list of courses that are often complimentary. The community is running its fall courses through December and will soon announce winter offerings. To obtain a catalog, contact Community Life Director, Jill Cogan, at 1-215-268-6554.
