KIB and the Sisters of Benedict Inn envision an urban park that accomplishes three main goals create a serene environment for meditation and reflection, strengthen the identity of Beech Grove and reconnect St. Benedict Inn with the surrounding community, and finally preserve the natural setting of the park through planting native trees and grasses. The three acres park will provide an inviting place for Sisters, visitors, and community members to reflect and experience a connection to the natural ecosystem.

A native plant oasis and community meditation space will be constructed on the grounds of Benedict Inn. This space will serve as a welcoming gateway to the Beech Grove neighborhood, with long term plans to serve as a potential native outdoor laboratory.
