The Science Museum of Virginia has opened its new community greenspace called The Green. With the trees planted, art sculpture installed and pathways poured, the public can start enjoying the urban park’s natural beauty as well as environmental and health benefits. The project aligns with the city’s Richmond 300 development plan, which prioritizes green infrastructure for Greater Scott’s Addition, one of the fastest growing, mixed-use neighborhoods in the city with one of the lowest levels of urban tree cover. The Green is, and will always be, free and open not just to Science Museum guests, but to all of the public.
Here you can learn more about the project, get your questions answered, see renderings for future sections of The Green and perhaps most importantly, learn how you can support this crucial community project!
