Here’s a map and list of the gardens and plantings maintained by the Crown Point Garden Club (as of October 2019).
Pipeline Trail Pollinator Garden
Our first project, this mostly native plant garden is about 700 square feet in size. It is on the Pipeline Trail between Edgemont and Park Row North. The nearest intersection (by car) is Dunsmure and Edgemont.
This planting is an informal rehab of a prior attempt to beautify a small triangle of land created by a split in the paved path where the Pipeline Trail intersects Edgemont. Some natives, a lot of tough perennials.
Park Row Pollinator Patches
Two small (12’x12′) native plantings at each end of the Park Row North boulevard, between Cannon and Edinburgh. Minimal maintenance, lots of life.
Kenilworth DePave Garden
On Kenilworth between Cannon and Britannia, this garden serves as a stormwater swale for the adjacent parking lot. On the property owned by Holy Family Parish at 1393 Cannon Street East, this garden was built in 2016 with funding from Hamilton Green Venture. Many native shrubs and trees but mostly an experiment in what will survive the extreme conditions.
Crown Point Garden Club Nursery Beds
Facing Cannon just west of Kenilworth on the property of Holy Family Church, these raised beds serve to beautify the streetscape and provide a home for plants being propagated for the club’s annual Garden Day event.
