Woodland Garden within the City

The Park at Essex Crossing, New York, New York, USA

Reflecting the desires of the community: access to nature, a playground, safety elements and flexible seating.

Ecological benefits at the ground plane: an entirely native palette of trees and groundcovers, from Honeysuckle trees to Blueberry shrubs. Layers of canopy and understory trees, swaths of woodland planting, and vine-covered vertical plantings create a shady oasis in the city.

Multifunctional planter edges offer seating and robust wooden details offer a soft antidote to the typical concrete of the city.
