‘Gateway to York Garden’ to command city’s busiest entrance

People call this green area that greets motorists heading into York City from the south many things. But grassy knoll seems to be a common name. Whatever its name, this WellSpan-owned property will be landscaped to the tune of $35,000 to become a major “Welcome to York” sign. This is York, Pa.’s, busiest entrance – the way taken by York Expo Center goers, York College students and thousands of others each day. The Rotary Club of York is erecting this big sign – “Gateway to York Garden” – as part of its 100th birthday in 2016.
