The Georgetown Parks and Recreation Department has completed renovations at the Heritage Community Garden and is now accepting reservations for plots on a first-come, first-served basis, according to a release from the city. The garden will open March 1.

The outdoor space has 25 in-ground garden beds, 48 raised beds and eight Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant beds.

Leases run from March 1 through Dec. 31 and may be renewed annually.

An in-ground 20-foot-by-20-foot bed can be leased for $50 annually for city residents and $75 annually for nonresidents. Raised beds and ADA-accessible beds, both 16 feet by 7 feet, cost $40 for residents and $50 for nonresidents.

The garden will be open daily from 5 a.m.-10 p.m. at 2100 Hutto Road, Georgetown.


Other renovations to the site include a new restroom facility, sidewalks, a lighted parking lot, a dumpster with a designated green waste area and a chain-link fence to secure the property. The total project cost was $275,000.

The city has also partnered with the Williamson County Beekeepers Association to construct hives at a later date.
