Columbia Park Nature Patch

Nature Patch Complete at Columbia Park

This natural forest landscape has a floral lawn planted with crocuses, flat-top log benches and boulders, a network of walking paths, and a unique selection of pollinator-pleasing plants. The project repurposed an underutilized and degraded area of the park to give the picnic areas a cohesive design. Thanks to everyone who helped out during the planning, construction, and planting!
