Restoration of Bronx Zoo’s Astor Court

Working around a canopy of mature trees, NV5 designed a restoration of the grounds of the historic Astor Court at the Bronx Zoo in New York which included the redesign of the plantings, pavements, curbs, and drainage and integration of new site furnishings.

The plan also included restoration of the terraced Italianate garden and fountain at the zoo’s Fordham Road entrance gate and plaza. Sustainable features included enlarged tree pits, low flow irrigation system, use of reclaimed materials, and native plantings.
