All meetings are held at Planting Fields Arborteum State Historic Park in Oyster Bay


October 26, 2014 1:30pm

Speaker: Richard A. Gibney, RLA Principal of Gibney Design LA PC

Topic: The Sensory Garden at Planting Fields, Lecture and tour

The Sensory Garden at Planting Fields Arboretum and State Historic Park was visualized nine years ago and GDLAPC provided conceptual designs that were later developed into the final design with the NYS Region 1 Parks Department. In a partnership between Planting Fields Foundation and New York State, the project was funded and work began in 2013. Weather and delivery delays have pushed the scheduled opening to Spring of 2015 but work is proceeding and substantial completion is expected before winter. Mr. Gibney will discuss the design of the garden and (weather permitting) conduct a brief tour of the Garden. Other developments to be discussed will include the parking lot renovation and green infrastructure improvements anticipated in the coming year.
