A 140-acre section of the 1000-acre Two Rivers island park will be planted as a Garden of Trees. Two Rivers Park is being developed as a regional urban park, accommodating pedestrian, bicycle, boat, and vehicular networks. The Garden’s planting design will highlight indigenous tree species, keeping in mind that most people—as our client observes—often “fail to see the trees from the forest.” Identifiable arboreal spatial arrangements like allées, bosques, hammocks, and groves will form outdoor rooms to create a living educational center along the Little Rock Recreation Corridor.
