Princeton University Gardens and Walkways
A visitor to Princeton's campus will find beautiful flowers, acres of green lawns, and an astonishing variety of trees. Although much of the open space is park-like in character, there is also a strong tradition of including smaller garden spaces as important punctuations in the campus landscape. The landscape and buildings are interconnected with many miles of pedestrian-friendly walkways--these pathways help define the vistas and context that are vital to a sense of place.
As part of our stewardship of the physical Campus, the gardens and walkways of Princeton are in a constant state of restoration, maintenance, or upgrade. Completed restoration and construction projects include: Prospect Garden, Wyman Garden, Hibben Garden, and Class of 1976 Garden. Dulles Garden, near Firestone Library, is planned for the future. A number of walkways have been added or upgraded, including Blair Walk, Boathouse Walk, a walkway along South Drive, and new sidewalks along Western Way, Fitzrandolph Road, and Faculty Road.
- An integrated landscaping approach that helps to restore the quality and capacity of the regional watershed
- Use of natural, locally-produced compost and mulch for landscape projects
- Safe, attractive walks encourage people to walk or bike to campus
