Roxhill Bog Park
Charles Anderson Atelier
This rare remnant bog and wetland was uncovered and shaped to reflect the past agricultural uses for bogs in Seattle. Native plants which are able to tolerate these conditions were set in rigid geometric patterns offering playfulness and ecological awareness to the community.
The 12 acre Park and Bog restoration project conducted for this public amenity. The second phase of the project included removal of more fill covering peat deposits to restore an additional 1.5 acres of wetlands. This doubles the wetlands restored in the first phase of the project. Over 45,000 native plants and trees were planted in the wetlands and upland areas of the project.
