Aldersgate United Methodist Church has 1.9 acres of land surrounding the church facilities. Public streets border three sides of the property.   Aldersgate Gardens represents a project to convert the 1.9 acres of green space into a sustainable landscape. The vision is for an intensively landscaped park that serves the neighborhood, benefits wildlife, and reduces lawn care.  A new playground with natural features and paths leading to the playground from two side streets are part of the long range plan. Part of the vision, too, is offering solace through nature.   “The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quite alone with the heavens, nature, and God.  And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.”  -- Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl

The plan reflects four goals: to provide attractive grounds, benefit the neighborhood, benefit the environment, and offer solace through nature.
