We thank everyone that celebrated the 25th anniversary of GreenScape on Saturday, April 23, 2016. City neighborhoods were beautifully enhanced during this annual spring event!

GreenScape is a city and community partnership investment of beautification, clean-up, and planting in public spaces throughout the City of Annapolis. GreenScape was founded through the efforts of former Mayor Ellen Moyer and the Annapolis Recreation and Parks Advisory Board in 1991. Marking the 25th year, hundreds of projects have been initiated and adopted by individuals, community groups and neighborhood associations. GreenScape takes place each spring with additional efforts in the fall during the national "Make a Difference Day". If you have any questions, please e-mail Marisa at
