New Pollinator Patch at Commons Park

Pollinator Patch - flowers with a bee flying around them

Our Parks staff recently finished adding a new Pollinator Patch at the northwest corner of Commons Park! Check out our pollinator-friendly plants and see if you can spot butterflies, bees and more.

Our Parks staff recently finished adding a new Pollinator Patch at the northwest corner of Commons Park! The patch was planted with pollinator-friendly plants and is definitely working - a few pollinators have already been enjoying the new addition! 

Staff designed and built a retaining wall to stop erosion, and then used the construction as an opportunity to develop a pollinator habitat. Pollinators are crucial to a healthy ecosystem and over one-third of our food supply is dependent on them. Stop by the park and to see how many plants and pollinators you can spot!

You can create your own pollinator patch at home by planting pollinator-friendly plant species and avoiding pesticides that are harmful to wildlife.
