Nokomis East Gateway Gardens: Help beautify the neighborhood and attract butterflies!
Gateway Gardens was designed pro bono by the landscape architecture firm of colberg|tews to resemble a Monarch butterfly wing when seen from an aerial view. Planted in October of 2010 using all native plants indigenous to the region, including a Bur Oak to represent the Oak Savanna found in this area centuries ago. Gateway Gardens is sponsored by NENA (Nokomis East Neighborhood Association). Metro Transit provides the site and additional support. Gateway Gardens is maintained by neighborhood volunteers. Everyone is welcome to volunteer and visitors are encouraged.
