Hodgson Douglas was selected by the City of Oak Grove, KY to complete a master plan for Veteran’s Park, a 100 Acre parcel donated to the city. This master plan focused on creating a sustainable landscape while also meeting the city’s needs for active and passive recreation space. The plan includes a gathering lawn, restored wetlands and stream, restore meadow, observation boardwalks, earth sculpture, playground, and butterfly garden to accommodate the annual Butterfly Festival held by the city. Over 25 native plant species were planted in the garden, attracting dozens of butterfly species every year and increasing visitors to Veterans Park.
