A Living Classroom

Center Park is Carlisle's place for education on plantings and best practices in gardening. In 2024 we will be in the 17th year years since an abandoned lot was turned into Center Park and in our 5th year since a dedicated group of volunteers began a new style of stewardship to enhance beautiful Carlisle Center Park. Come visit any day dawn to dusk to take in the natural beauty of this pocket park and to get inspiration for your own landscape.
