Keeping it Natural

Updated: Mar 23, 2021

One really exciting aspect of this park is the opportunity we have to connect people to nature while simultaneously restoring, protecting and preserving the land.

A low woodland understory of native and drought tolerant plantings add beauty, color and act as living mulch.

Open groves of closely planted trees with airy canopies create open groves, places for play and a nature-based experience while maintaining clear sightlines.

A sensory garden allows visitors to smell, taste, touch and gather for immersive and educational opportunities.

A bio retention area includes swales and snags which provides stormwater benefits and creates habitat and educational opportunities.

Stay tuned to see how our landscape architects are designing with meticulous attention to detail around accessibility to ensure all people can interact with nature and experience the health benefits it provides.
