Mrs. Bush, Michael Van Valkenburgh and Team Stroll the Grounds
This week, Mrs. Bush, Bush Center Landscape Architect Michael Van Valkenburgh, and Laura Solano and Matthew Urbanski of Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates (MVVA) strolled the grounds to look at the progress of the landscape. Herb Sweeney of the MVVA team also helped transform the 15-acre park into a Texas prairie. The grounds feature more than 900 trees of native varieties, including many trees that were transplanted from the Bush’s ranch in Crawford, close to 1,900 shrubs and a wildflower meadow. The group also viewed the urban park from the third-floor green roof decks, which help reduce cooling and heating demands of the Bush Center.
