AirPark Pollinator Path
What is the Pollinator Path?
The Path will utilize the infrastructure of the existing Columbus People Trail and connect the two large native plant installations at the AirPark. On areas along this section of the People Trail, new native plant beds, signage, and wildlife housing will be installed, beginning in May 2022.
Blackwell Park is located approximately 1.5 miles from the Native Plant Meadow. The enhancements along the People Trail will encourage bikers and pedestrians to travel by businesses, Ivy Tech, and IUPUC campus. Running, biking, and walking along this section of the People Trail will introduce people to 2 of the most diverse native plant areas in Columbus.
Two major plant installation areas will be a 750 square ft native planting on street island on Ray Boll Blvd (#2 on map) and Ivy Tech Agriculture Pilot Project at Community Gardens (#3 on map).
