The Gabriel Park Nature Patch is a beautiful, ecologically diverse pollinator landscape.
Special thanks to the neighborhood who came out in March to bring this garden to life with a wide variety of flowering native and ornamental plants.
Help care for this space!
Email program coordinator Eric Rosewall to get learn about upcoming stewardship events here.
Designed in partnership with the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation, the Gabriel Park Nature Patch includes native and ornamental flowering shrub beds with natural seating and habitat features. The nature patch, across from the community garden and orchard, overlooks a beautiful pollinator meadow to the north that has over thirty varieties of native forbs, grasses, and wildflowers to support wildlife. Check out the plan below.
The nature patch has a community gathering shelter, modeled on this one seen at Sabin School. Construction is expected to take place in fall 2019.
The nature patch overlooks an expansive pollinator meadow seen here during early establishment summer 2018.
