White Heron Award March 2013

The Marathon Garden Club recently presented the White Heron Award to Grassy Key RV Park & Resort. This traveling award is given to area businesses along the US1 corridor, between Conch Key and the Seven Mile Bridge, in recognition of their efforts to improve the landscaping and curb appeal of their properties.

Wendy Murphy & Jack Browning took over managing the resort in 2009 & have made numerous improvements including widening the buffer plantings between the park & US1 and using black granite in contrast with coral gravel in the hardscape. The 4 acre resort located near MM58 has 38 RV sites, marina, pool & beach area. The new landscape is a combination of natives & tropical plants including buttonwood, ornamental plumeria, bougainvillea, crotons, ruella and an assortment of palms.
