This unique, over 4-acre park will be an incredible experience for current and future generations of Moscow’s citizens. Not only is this a first for our city, there are few like it in the Pacific Northwest. The steep, south facing hills will eventually be home to fruit and nut bearing trees, shrubs and edible plants. The Harvest Park Management Plan is the first step in coordinating how the park will be used by the public. City Council approved the final management plan on June 27th, 2022.

Proposed Edible Forest Conceptual Design Plan and Public Meetings
The City, with assistance from Bernardo Wills Architects, held the first public planning workshop on the new Edible Forest Park on December 19, 2018. Information about the project was presented and great information was gathered from the public for the new park. For those who were unable to attend, a pdf of the presentation slides can be found here:
At the second public planning workshop, which was attended by over 40 people, Bernardo Wills presented a proposed conceptual design for the Edible Forest Park; this design was based on the results of the first workshop as well as information collected through the public survey and input from the Moscow Tree Commission.
The Edible Forest Park is located along Southview Avenue, east of the intersection of Highway 95 and Southview Avenue at the south end of Moscow. This unique space is intended to provide educational opportunities and an example to the community of stewardship of a public food forest. The park is intended to create a sense of place and community pride for Moscow for generations to come.
