Entry Plaza at Audubon Park
The Saint Charles Avenue Association has made a donation of $20,000 to the Audubon Nature Institute to re-landscape and beautify the St. Charles Avenue Entry Plaza at Audubon Park. Originally, the Garden Study Club of New Orleans and New Orleans Town Gardeners contacted the Audubon Institute to support a community beautification project to honor the 200th birthday of landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, known as "the father of landscape architecture.” His nephew and adopted son, John Charles Olmsted, did the design for Audubon Park. Audubon Park suggested revamping the St. Charles Avenue entrance. SCAA joined meetings in November to discuss the scope, design intent, and other operational possibilities. The garden space will be utilized as a center for education and environmental stewardship, with an emphasis on native and pollinator friendly plants. The space will also provide educational volunteer opportunities. Planting will be done in the front and around the fountain, and the irrigation system will be replaced. SCAA is excited about this opportunity to partner with the Garden Study Club of New Orleans and New Orleans Town Gardeners, and to participate in the beautification of Audubon Park!
