The Jacksonville Garden Club received the 2013 Commercial Beautification Award for the Ladiga Trail Gardens. Presented by the Calhoun County Beatification Board annually, awards represent five districts in two categories, commercial and residential. Jacksonville is in District 5 with Commissioner Rudy Abbott. The award sign stands by the gazebo on the Ladiga Trail. Garden Club members gave the framed certificate to the city in appreciation of their shared partnership in developing the gardens.
