Cosmos festival planned for Fureai Garden in Urasoe
The Urasoe Green Heights Residents’ Association is organizing a cosmos festival in Fureai Garden next to Maeda sewer pump station in Urasoe City. The festival will take place from June 4 through 18th.
The 1,650-square-meter Fureai Garden is renowned for its large swarms of butterflies fluttering among its orange, yellow, white and red cosmos flowers.
Fureai Garden is a public park owned by Urasoe City that has been maintained and managed by Urasoe Green Heights Association since June 2013. The association members have planted sunflowers, lilies, tomatoes, and cucumbers in the park. According to the association chairman, “We manage the park in order to invigorate the area, and to make it a safe environment to live.”
Fureai Garden was modeled after Kleingarten, a gardening welfare movement in Germany. 24 local households manage the garden that is a place to socialize and communicate for residents.
Festival organizers plan to give seeds of cosmos flowers as a presents for visitors on the first day of the festival.
Entry to the festival is free of charge.
