Our Approach

Sowing the seeds for a deeper understanding of the power of nature as a healing space for individuals and communities

4th Street City Park

4th Street and Severn Avenue
Annapolis, MD 21403

Just outside TKF’s door is a street-end park that was in dire need of an updated design and renovation. Not only is it a quiet place for contemplation, it is also an environmentally proactive rain garden; a model for all Annapolis street end parks. Features include plants designed to capture and filter the run-off and trash that currently pollute Spa Creek, along with a historical accent on the site’s history as the location of the original bridge connecting Eastport and Annapolis. The view from the space is that of downtown, the Naval Academy and the calming waters of Spa Creek.

    About Us

    We are a private nonprofit that supports, informs, and inspires the creation of publicly accessible urban green spaces. We believe that every city resident needs nearby green space to provide opportunities for mindfulness, respite, and renewal. The Foundation has issued its final grants to build five Open Spaces Sacred Places and research the impacts on a variety of users with the hope that the powerful connection between nature, spirit and human wellbeing will be scientifically proven.
