The Garden is not managed, operated, or affiliated by the North Barton Heights Civic Association. This page is provided to support the garden and its positive impact on our community.

The Brookland Park Community Park is within the North Barton Heights Civic Association territory, but managed by a community coordinator and volunteers throughout the Northside or Richmond and available to the broader Brookland Park Community. The garden/orchard is located at 2901 Woodrow Avenue in the historical Northside neighborhood of North Barton Heights and consists of 18 raised garden beds, an orchard with 29 fruit and nut trees, and a community flower cutting garden.
