For more than 25 years, The Village Green has enhanced lives in and the lifestyle of the Cashiers area. From the beginning, The Village Green was designed for this purpose:
To be a park for the people.
Today this has never been more true. The Village Green is here for you with its wide-open spaces and many therapeutic benefits. In the chaotic, upside-down world we are living in at the moment, having a place of sanctuary is more critical than ever before.
You can stroll the winding pathways of The Village Green. Springtime is always a beautiful time to be in the park. Many trees and flowers are blooming now, including 200 daffodils that were planted last fall. Support one of our local restaurants by picking up curbside take-out food and have a picnic in one of our shelters. Bring a book to read or a sketchpad to draw and find one of the many benches tucked away in several locations throughout the park. Or, simply sit, soak up the sun and listen to the birds. The Village Green is home to many migratory birds, including the Eastern Bluebird, a sign of happiness. Unroll your yoga mat in the grass and practice sun salutations, or take an online course offered by Cashiers Valley Fusion. For a full schedule, visit http://www.cashiersvalleyfusion.com/schedule/.
Speaking of logging in…you are now able to access the internet using The Village Green public Wifi! This is just one more way that The Village Green is working for Cashiers, enhancing our community connection.
