Garden, Boardwalk

The Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden, established in 1907, was the first public wildflower garden in the United States. The much needed and newly designed boardwalk features a unique curved modular system that allows for ease of assembly and quick directional changes. Additional pieces include benches, bridge railings and camera posts, and future interpretive signage, all designed for easy assemblage into the existing boardwalk frame. The entire assembly rests easy on the land, as to not disturb the gentle ecosystem embedded within the Garden.
