Site

The one acre site is located on a slope in a northern section of the park that is deemed “The Redwood Grove”. This grove of redwoods was established in recent years by members of the neighborhood community. The dominant overstory species are conifers. Unfortunately, the understory is dominated by non-native English Ivy with a mix of native and non-native shrubs dispersed throughout. The site is dry and shady with the exception of a small section where the soil is damp—perhaps a result of a seep.
