A willow tunnel for Baltimore
This week, volunteers and Willow Artist Bonnie Gale will build Baltimore’s first living willow tunnels, providing a unique feature and play space at the park.
Gale will guide the construction of the living willow tunnels with the help of volunteers from Constellation Energy and the Boy Scouts.
Willow rods will be planted in certain patterns and the branches will be woven together at the top to form a ridge line and, ultimately, a tunnel that will continue to grow.
The work begins Tuesday and will be completed on Friday.
Located on a one-acre parcel of land on Pier 5 between Columbus Center and Eastern Avenue, Pierce’s Park is dedicated to the memory of Baltimore contractor and business owner Pierce J. Flanigan III.
