Santa Fe Trail Interpretive Garden | Raton, New Mexico
City of Raton, New Mexico
Uncommon Respect for:
- History — Our aim was to celebrate the experience of travelers and settlers along the Santa Fe Trail
- Ecology — The configured garden demonstrates a variety of ecosystems throughout the trail system
- Culture — The implementation of the “Trail through time” celebrates gardens along the trail from early times to present
With attention to and reverence for history, ecology and culture, Consilium Design created a garden that features a range of native ecosystems as well as a “Trail Through Time” that celebrates the built Gardens of Santa Fe Trail residents from early times to the present day.
This project is the first phase in an extensive redevelopment of a former rail yard adjacent to downtown Raton, New Mexico and will form part of the extensive downtown revitalization project currently underway.
This 2.5-acre park in a new Main Street community celebrates the experience of travelers and settlers along the Santa Fe Trail who founded the city of Raton and neighboring communities.
