Naperville’s Prairie Nature Garden starting to take shape

The Prairie Nature Garden is starting to take shape just west of Centennial Beach, along the edges of the detention basin near the sand volleyball court. The Riverwalk Commission approved the plan last January and discussed the progress of the garden at Wednesday’s meeting.

Naperville Park District staff were assisted by a group of Girl Scouts, who helped plant the island area of the Prairie Nature Garden last week. Two benches and a trash receptacle were installed in the garden on Tuesday.

Naperville Riverwalk Operations Manager Tiffani Picco added that a cover crop with taller grass is starting to grow in where the turf grass was, and some cosmos plants are also starting to grow. Park district officials hope to see the flowers bloom later this summer.
