The efforts of a group of neighbors have joined together to try and renovate Omaha’s Sunken Gardens. The goal is to create a beautiful formal garden and retain areas of the park for football and sledding.
An Omaha World Herald article explains that the City of Bellevue, Nebraska, is supporting changes proposed for Mason Park, a neighborhood park that has been neglected the past couple of decades. Park advocates propose using private donations to make park improvements, which will be designed by Big Muddy. The city will contract with Omaha Permaculture, a local non-profit, to manage the site and convert some of the mown areas into an edible landscape.
