Park-Like is a garden for people, plants, and wildlife located across the street from the museum. A half-acre in scale, the garden contains over 100 varieties of native and non-native plants as well as found building materials that have been transformed into water filtration systems, retaining structures, and seating. Using land and rainscaping techniques, Park-Like is designed to absorb rainfall from storms and reduce the impact on urban sewer systems while creating a site for both wildlife and people.
Park-Like is designed by Studio Land Arts, run by artist and landscape designer Chris Carl and based in Granite City, IL.
Park-Like is open to the public daily from sunrise to sunset and is part of the Pulitzer’s campus, including, the Spring Church—an open air stone pavilion and beloved landmark, the Tree Grove—a shady picnic spot with oak and redbud trees, and the museum designed by world-renowned architect Tadao Ando.
