As part of our mission to improve The Park in perpetuity, we engaged Kathryn Herman Dersign to beautify th emian driveway, in 2022. Working in conjunction with The Town, the goal was to enhance a visitor’s first impression as they enter from the main South Gate as well as to enhance the everyday experience of visitors walking or running along the driveway trail.


The result was the installation of over 10,000 Native plants including ferns, rhodedendrons, viburnums and more. While at an early stage of their growth, we are excited to see the seasonal color and texture palette that these plants will bring to the Park.

In 2023, additional new plantings were added to the South Avenue entrance and The Conservancy has current plans to add plantings by the Lapham Road entrance.
