Restoring the Native Gardens of Oyster Shell Park

In 2006, Norwalk’s waste yard was transformed into a 15-acre riverside native plant garden and became a prototype for community gathering space along the East Coast. After a strong debut, the garden endured several years of deferred maintenance. The restoration of native plants in Oyster Shell Park began in 2018 and continues today with the support of community collaborations. We will walk through the garden and explore native plant highlights while discussing the master plan and planting design, plant list, efforts to remove invasive plants and encourage pollinators, and ongoing relationships that make Oyster Shell Park thrive.
