In front of the Foundry building, a sprawling herb garden helps keep the relaxing calm of the terrace from the gleeful noises of the children's playground.
The idea behind this landscaping decision was to play up the industrial architecture of New Holland Island. A frilly flower garden would be out of place here. Instead, we chose a selection of herbs and plants, more in keeping with kitchen gardens or plots at country cottages. Dill, thyme, lemon balm, lavender, and mint all help transport visitors far from the hum of city life.
At the Infocenter visitors can pick up a brochure with more detailed information on the plants in the Herb Garden.
