The Township has partnered with the Cincinnati Nature Center to install a pollinator pathway and prairie at Kingswood.

What is the project timeline?

  • A Community Meeting was held on August 27, 2020 to gain additional community feedback.
  • A self-guided project area tour was available August 14 - September 7, 2020 for the community to walk the site and provide additional feedback through an online survey.

Where exactly will this project take place?
  • On the southern side of the park, the pollinator pathway and island gardens are expected to follow the paved path from the Community Pavilion to the new crosswalk.
  • After crossing Innovation Way at the crosswalk, there is expected to be a large native perennial garden welcoming visitors to the northern section.
  • The initial plans are available in the Trustee Meeting Presentation.
  • Please note that the plan is being adjusted based on feedback from current cylcocross and cross country users. (This mainly impacts the northern side prairie area.)

How can I get involved?

  • Provide feedback during a self-guided tour of the project area on-site between August 14th - 28th.
  • Volunteer opportunities may become available in the future to help maintain the landscaping.

How does the SELF-GUIDED TOUR of the project area work?
  • Start at the Community Pavilion and walk the project site on your own schedule from August 14th - September 7th.
  • Self-Guided Tour signs begin at the Community Pavilion, lead down the pathway, and across the street to the north side of the park.
