As Leach Botanical Garden undergoes a major expansion led by Land Morphology and Olson-Kundig, sparks+sullivan is creating an inclusive visitor experience that embodies the unique legacy and spirit of the Garden. From interpretive kiosks, signs and services, to maps and visitor materials, we will develop a comprehensive visitor communication system.

This public park is like no other in the Portland Parks & Recreation family. A strong, personal history and experience—a visit feels like entering someone’s home. The care, detail and personality shines through, and will continue to be at the heart of the Garden with the expansion and beyond.


Construction has just begun, and we are currently working with the Garden on the future visitor experience. Phase 1 is expected to be completed late 2020.
