Bowling green park in 3d viewer

Following up from the July 4th post I have now updated the beta 3d viewer, so that Bowling Green Park is one of the default sample plans provided. Get the latest version of the 3d viewer for Garden Planner plans here. Click on the number 2 to open the park. It’s a large plan and may take a moment to display. I think it’s come out quite well, considering it’s being created from a 2d plan, but I welcome any feedback.

Garden Planner Summer / 4th July update

The latest update to Garden Planner is inspired by the northern hemisphere summer and the US 4th July weekend. This update adds in some new objects including Grills, Pizza ovens, fire pits and fountains. As always its a free update, just download and install the latest trial version and it will update (if you have the full version of garden planner the trial version will automatically switch to the full version). If you purchased through the Mac or Windows store just update through the store app.

Also, inspired by the 4th of July I’ve created a new plan of Bowling Green Park in lower

Manhattan, in New York.

So, what has this to do with the fourth of July? Well it’s the oldest park in NY, and in 1770 the British government erected a statue of King George III in the park. But on July 9th 1776 after  the Declaration of Independence was read to Washington’s troops at the current site of City Hall, troops rushed down Broadway to Bowling Green and the statue was toppled. According to folklore, the statue was chopped up made into patriot ammunition. The center of the park now has a large pond and fountain. If you wish you can download the plan here.
