HIGHLANDS, NJ - The Highlands Garden Club of Highlands, New Jersey is a non-profit organization with the objectives of encouraging interest in all phases of home gardening and to promote better horticultural practices, civic beauty and the conservation of natural resources in the community.
The club maintains several parks (Cornwall Square, Ederle Park, Huddy Park, Veteran’s Park) and planters in town. In addition, they participate in the Monmouth Museum tree decorating program, local parades, local events and Fall/Spring flower/vegetable sales.
One recent and exciting event was the redesign of a sitting bench at Cornwall Square located on Cornwall Street & Bay Avenue. It began as a solid tan sitting bench and is now a breathtaking free interpretation of Highlands.
Maureen McCrink Gribbroek is a HGC volunteer who also acts as Cornwall Square’s volunteer park chairperson. The bench project was a vision that she shared with her brother who is a talented, local artist.
Michael McCrink is a ‘muralist’ who uses the ‘trompe l’oeil’ technique which can be seen at The Shore Casino in Atlantic Highlands and on the rear wall of Jack’s Music Shop in Red Bank.
