Adding Color to Downtown Parkersburg

Downtown PKB

An exciting addition to bring more color to downtown Parkersburg is set to begin.

Downtown PKB is spearheading a project to add large flower baskets to light posts from the 300 to 800 block of Market Street. "This is an idea we have been exploring for a couple of years now," said Wendy Shriver, executive director of Downtown PKB. Adding beautiful flowers to the landscape of downtown Parkersburg will compliment the metal artwork installed a couple of weeks ago very nicely. Several exciting things are happening and we are thrilled to be involved. An essential element of this project is to find individuals and businesses who are interested in sponsoring a basket.

Cost to sponsor a basket is $250 per year, and we welcome sponsorships of one or multiple baskets. All baskets will be marked with the sponsor’s name. Greenscape Landscape Co. & Nursery located at 1278 Gihon Road in Parkersburg will be planting and installing the baskets and maintaining them throughout the season. To have the baskets installed by the middle of May, all sponsorships must be finalized by April 30. For more information on how to sponsor a basket, email Wendy Shriver at
