Strasburg Community Park | Strasburg, PA

Located in a former cornfield, this twelve-acre passive park features a rich mosaic of meadow, shrubland, and woodland ecosystems designed to evolve according to the processes of natural succession. Meadows constitute a long-term composition in some sections of the park while in other areas meadows are allowed to evolve into managed shrublands and woodlands. Working closely with the Strasburg Community Park Foundation, LWLA educated stakeholders about this design program, creating buy-in that has made the park, along with its earthen amphitheater, network of walking paths, and habitat observation areas, a treasured amenity in the region.
