The new King’s Reach shoreline garden includes wetland-loving Elderberry, Winterberry Holly, Pink Turtlehead, Ironweed, Baccharis and Hibiscus.  ​

Jefferson Patterson Park is home to a variety of gardens; ranging from the formal gardens of the Patterson's home, to the traditional Native American village garden. Over the years, park staff have also cultivated pollinator gardens, rain gardens and themed native plant gardens.

​With the new horticulture position, we have a staff person dedicated to the care and interpretation of the gardens. Join us as a volunteer for garden workdays, attend an educational workshop, or just come to stroll the grounds as we enhance the park with native plants, food plants, and pollinator-friendly spaces.
