Arboretum May update

Columbia Children’s ArboretumProject Update for May 2022
Construction is beginning and fencing will be installed the week of May 9th. We’re happy to share that construction fencing will be isolated to the west side of the park (west of the bridge in the middle of the park) ​and the parking area on NE 6th Drive will be closed.  This will allow for the east side of the park, accessed only from Meadow Lane and Lija Loop, to remain open to visitors until approximately July or August at which point the east side of the park will also become closed for construction.

Work occurring through the month of May will include contractor mobilization onto the site, utility locates, tree protection fencing, tree pruning, erosion control, surveying, clearing and grubbing, earthwork and storm sewer work in NE 6th Drive. Please note there will be a one lane closure on NE 6th Drive for several weeks to complete this work.
