SENSE OF PLACE
Situated at the northeast corner of Myriad Botanical Gardens, Meinders Garden is a celebration of Oklahoma's majestic Ozarks mountain range. An all-native plant palette and boulders sourced from the Ozarks create an immersive landscape experience.
Myriad Botanical Gardens, designed by the office of James Burnett and Murase Associates, was a joint design effort that took the underused 15 acre botanical garden and programmed it into a highly active destination. The renovation has significantly improved the quality of life in Oklahoma City. In 2015, the project won the ULI Urban Open Space Award. The annual award recognizes outstanding examples of successful public spaces that have socially enriched and helped revitalize the economy of their surrounding communities.
