5 Islands pathway completed thanks to your donations & membership

The BrightView professional landscaping company has completed construction of a pathway in the 5 Islands project.  Five inches of earth were removed before putting in a rock base and decomposed granite.  The 5 Islands project is located east of the corner of Meridian and Golden Oak Way in Jeffrey Fontana Park.

The pathway is not primarily utilitarian. The combination and array of the islands, boulders, native plants, split-rail fence, and Ironwood tree, combined with the paths as illustrated below, form an integrated landscape feature. The purpose is to draw the eye of the park user to the array, see it as an ‘isolated’ destination, one to visit and contemplate. Although the walking paths do not encircle the islands, they will give you that impression.
