A newly restored Jens Jensen Park with a council ring and reflecting pool. We pass this everyday on our way to school!
Danish born, American landscape architect Jens Jensen 1860-1951. Jensen was one of the founders of the early conservation movement, and believed in using native plants.
We are so lucky in my neighborhood to have so many wonderful examples of Jens Jensen's prairie style, native gardens and parks. Jensen designed the grounds for the estate of Julius Rosenwald. It was purchased from the Rosenwald family and the estate was later torn down. The reflecting pool and surroundings at Upper Rosewood is what remains of his work.
