Projects: Moraine Valley Gateway
The Gateway, coupled with the Moraine Green to the north and the Gateway Promenade to the south, creates a welcoming atmosphere with both physical form, as defined by its edges, and character, as designed by landscape and pattern.
The area which also serves as an outdoor theater and event area features:
new sidewalks that provide direct connections to buildings
four-season interest with gardens that feature seating areas, natural grasses, and perennial beds, along with multi-functioning shaded spaces for eating, studying and congregating
native and non-native plantings for botany and biology class studies
Construction of the Gateway and surrounding areas was completed as part of the capital bond referendum approved by voters in 2006.
