parks + preserves
Human Nature has worked closely with the Cincinnati Park Board to update and redesign many areas of Cincinnati’s most popular park, including Seasongood Pavilion, Twin Lakes Playground, Liberty Garden, President's Grove, and Mirror Lake.
Building upon landscape architect Adolph Strauch's original vision for Eden Park as a series of theatrical sets, each "stage" blends hardscape with natural features to create an immersive environment for children and adults to let their imaginations run free.
The park has evolved into a series of gardens, now known as the Gardens of Eden, with different themes and features for each.
Liberty Garden: a place to remember those who lost their lives September 11, 2001
Liberty Garden: a journey by inspirational quotes about liberty and Freedom Stones representing Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s Four Freedoms speech
Presidents Grove: a ridgetop grove of trees dedicated to each of our country’s presidents
Twin Lakes Playground: nature inspired play environment
Twin Lakes Playground: place-specific design celebrating a former on-site quarry
