Each year tulips are planted in the fall and removed in May to be replaced with annual flowers. We plant a variety of early, mid and late blooming bulbs to ensure the longest bloom season possible. In May the tulips are replaced with 25,000+ annual flowers, in over 100 varieties, that will provide color into late summer. Central Park often boasts themed flower beds enhanced with custom designed sculptures. 180 FLOWER BEDS MAINTAINED BY CITY OF PELLA 10 1. It's BEAUTIFUL! 2. Many stellar attractions 3.
