Naples landscape architect David ... [cached]

Naples landscape architect David Driapsa, who is writing a book about Nehrling, has championed a more visible role for Nehrling's gardens at the zoo for the past decade.

Driapsa said the zoo master plan misses a unique opportunity to restore a cultural landscape that is part of Naples' pioneer past.
"We're at a critical point in Naples where the old Naples is pretty much all gone," said Driapsa, a Florida district officer for the National Park Service's Historic American Landscapes Survey."This is the only thing that's left.There's nothing more."
Driapsa envisions moving the zoo out of the 13-acre Nehrling garden site and onto land now planned for a county park.That would allow the county staff to reclaim the Nehrling site as a "central park" and open the door to further research that would help re-create the gardens Nehrling painstakingly laid out, he said.
In 1927, inventor Thomas Edison visited Nehrling's gardens and tested his ficus trees for their ability to produce rubber, according to Driapsa.
Driapsa called the deal "unconscionable."
"The archaeologist is going to stand there and monitor the site while it's being destroyed," he said.
The lesson of Nehrling's garden is how to fit in with nature rather than trying to rework nature to fit the landscape, Driapsa said.
He said that lesson is pertinent today more than ever.
"The zoo hasn't learned the lesson," he said.
