Silverwood Park

Silverwood is one of Three Rivers Park District's more urban properties with a focus on arts and the environment. Nestled along the shores of Silver Lake, Silverwood Park is unique in the metro area. Minutes from a busy freeway, it offers visitors an opportunity to relax in tranquil beauty and provides inspiration for artists. Trails offering spectacular views of Silver Lake, restored prairie, and mature oak forests circle the park and provide inspiration to all. Click here for a map of the park.


Join the garden designer Arla Carmichiel as she talks about the garden and landscape design at Silverwood. She will share the thought process behind the design, some of the successes and some of the not so successful ideas and plantings, and explain how the gardens and spaces have evolved over time. Carmichiel will also talk about maintaining the gardens and landscapes of Silverwood.


Following Arla’s presentation, she will lead the group on a tour of the gardens and landscapes at Silverwood Park. Attendees are sure to be inspired by Carmichiel’s knowledge and insight, and the beauty of the emerging autumn colors.


Presentation:  1:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m.

Garden/Landscape Tour:  2:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.
