Fernhill Park Nature Patch

In partnership with the Bureau of Environmental Services, we're bringing a nature patch to Fernhill Park.

Landscaping will continue through this summer and the project will conclude in the fall with a community planting event.

Please join us! Sign up here to attend the planting day on November 7th.


This natural forest garden includes a wide variety of native plants, replacing low-quality trees with native species, split-rail fencing, logs and boulders, and a gravel path connecting to the splash pad (to be installed this summer). The nature patch is on the hilltop that overlooks the splash pad and dog-off-leash-area.
