NATIVE PLANT DEMONSTRATION GARDEN
MAHON PARK

After many meetings with the city, we have all decided that the garden would become an interpretive area, with signage, and no longer be a demonstration garden.
The Mahon Park Stewards created the garden in 2004 in order to showcase the regionís native plants and encourage people to stop planting invasives in their gardens. By all accounts it was a success in that regard, being on the edge of a high use area.
But nature was determined to take over - some native plants thrived, and some did not.
The garden is well on its way to being absorbed back into the forest, and we think thatís a good thing.
With new interpretive signage, people will still be able to identify native plants and wildlife, and this area will continue to be an educational resource for all who walk by it.
Thanks to everyone who had a hand in creating and caring for this space. This was one of Evergreenís first native plant demonstration gardens, and our longest running. We learned so much from the experience and have much to be grateful for.
LOCATION
The garden is near the water park, North of the running track. You can enter the East side of Mahon Park from Jones Ave, North Van. Between 17th and 18th Streets.
