About the Project
A long-needed Master Landscape Plan for Gillson Park is under development with the help of Upland Design. In addition, Wilmette Park District landscape design and horticulture staff are creating landscape plans for other parks throughout the District.
Planning Goal and Outcomes
The overall goals of the Gillson Park Master Landscape Plan, as well as all park landscape plans, are to enhance parks’ natural areas while protecting existing high-quality trees and shrubs, and preserving existing open spaces.
