Transforming the lot across from the museum into an inviting green space, Park-Like is a rain garden designed by Studio Land Arts. The garden will utilize creative landscaping techniques to help absorb stormwater runoff and reduce the impact on urban drainage and sewer systems. Comprising both native and non-native plants, this sustainably designed garden will serve as a site for educational programs as well as a tranquil space in the neighborhood for the public to enjoy.
Park-Like is currently under construction and planned to open to the public in summer 2019. Studio Land Arts is run by artist and landscape designer Chris Carl and based in Granite City, IL. For more information, visit studiolandarts.com.
