We are happy to announce Courtney Goode, Principal, Goode Landscape Studio (GLS), will be leading the landscape team as we embark on our journey to construct Barnard Place Park.
Goode Landscape Studio is a Boston-based landscape architecture studio with over ten years of experience in design and landscape architecture. We are driven by a deep curiosity about local cultures and natural systems that shape the places where we work. We are socially conscious and ecologically minded and begin by listening to the land, to our clients, and to our communities. We are experimental and inquisitive, yet trust in proven methods and rely on expert knowledge. Our work seeks to balance pragmatism with poetry and to weave more sustainable ties between communities and the natural environment.

Leigh Miller is a Landscape Design Intern at GLS. Her interest in climate resilience and the potential of achieving multi-functional ecosystems through research-driven design brought her to landscape architecture. She is currently completing a Master of Landscape Architecture degree at the Rhode Island School of Design and holds a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science and Ecological Design from the University of Vermont. Prior to pursuing a graduate degree, Leigh designed and implemented energy efficiency programs, and worked on horticultural crews installing and maintaining native planting designs across Vermont.
COGdesign (Community Outreach Group for Landscape Design) was instrumental in volunteering their time for several months to create the conceptual design for the public Barnard Place Park.
Special thanks to Jennifer Kimball, Executive Director, COGdesign, Amanda Foran, Landscape Architect, Darrah Cole, Horticulturist, and Valerie Burns, Project Manager, for their expertise, professionalism and dedication to our project.
In March of 2020, we were thrilled to learn Barnard Place Park had been selected by the City of Boston’s Community Preservation Committee to receive a $150,000 grant towards completion of the park.
