Conceptual Models for Park Improvements
Cape May City Council passed a resolution authorizing the faculty and senior students in Temple"s Department of Landscape Architecture and Horticulture to coordinate with the Cape May citizenry on a comprehensive project entitled, "Cape May Coastal City: Planning and Designing a Cultural Landscape Network". The focus is on improving several of the City parks, creating a nature reserve in the eastern end of town, and preparing a "Pedestrian City Trail". The City Council´s goal is to integrate the parks more fully and sustainably into this walkable and vibrant destination City. In addition, the "Pedestrian City Trail" is to connect and educate residents and visitors to the City´s rich cultural and natural heritage while forging a path towards a sustainable future.
