Fernhill Park Nature Patch

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

Landscaping will begin this winter and the project will conclude next fall with a planting event on November 7, 2020.


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

Want to get involved in work days this winter? Get in touch for updates and sign up here for the community planting day in November.
