This large bed, around 3,000 sq.ft. arcs around the west side of a berm that backs the large central lawn at Caruthers Park in SW Portland. This was originally all Kinnickinnick, but became so overwhelmed with weeds that it was removed and replaced by this single species sweep of Rubus calcynoides which grows more densely and is more resistant to light foot traffic. The lawn is heavily used by area dogs and kids with the expected spillover.
