Walpole Garden: Update
With help from the Hillsdale Troop 1, incoming Lewis & Clark students (seated above), and neighbors, Friends of Terwilliger has established log bench seating areas with views in the Bancroft right of way and the elevated park area to its south
Wildflowers are in full bloom in the right of way and a new path runs diagonally across it from the Hamilton Terrace sidewalk towards the street light on Terwilliger nearest the crosswalk. We hope to extend this path with steps up to Terwilliger Parkway walking path.
On the southeast corner of the Walpole Garden we are preparing the ground for installation of a labyrinth just beyond the log bench seating
area. When the labyrinth is completed, people walking it will enjoy great views up the Willamette Valley and of Mount Hood. On the southwest corner of the Walpole Garden we have prepared an area for planting a shade garden in the fall. Additional fall plantings of perennials will be made around the log bench seating area and in the right of way.
Friends of Terwilliger have hired local artist Jo Wollschlaeger to design a Walpole Garden themed utility box wrap that NWNG has agreed to make and install on the Hamilton Terrace gas regulator utility box.
