The Plan

The Park Improvement Plan is a long held dream of Nature Preserve Foundation that is becoming a reality this autumn. Beginning with a redesigned landscape in front of the Nature Center, construction is underway. Our first step is to create an educational meadow. Please see below for updates on our progress, information about temporary closures, and other information regarding this project.

Construction has begun at the Watershed Nature Center for our Park Improvement Project. A huge thank you to the City of Edwardsville, the departments of Public Works and Parks and Recreation for getting this project started. (See photos of the progress.)

Please note: Tomorrow, September 28th, our main parking lot and part of Tower Avenue will be closed for construction however, you can still park your vehicle in the far lot (by the basketball courts) and access the trails.
