Description
Garden constructed beginning in 1916 by Dr. William A. Lambeth as an appendage to his "country" residence, Villino Lambeth (Lambeth House). After 1929, following the construction of Route 29 (Emmet Street) to the east and development of land to the south blocking of the natural path of Meadow Creek, the garden suffered periodic flooding and subsequent decay of the landscape and garden structures. Project completed 2004 to turn this neglected and weedy area into a retention pond landscaped to provide a public park and stormwater management of Meadow Creek. The creek has been also daylighted to improve its biological integrity, and the remains of garden structures have been incorporated into the design scheme. -- Wilson/Neuman/Butler, The University of Virginia Campus Guide, 2nd, ed., 2012; http://www.asla.org/2009awards/567.html
