Urban landscape
Commencement 2005

In June, landscapers in the grounds department could be found all around Main Campus planting, shaping and watering Temple's many green spaces.

Temple’s grounds department maintains landscaped areas totaling more than 200 acres on the Main, Tyler and Ambler campuses, and plants more than 40,000 annual bulbs each year. On Main Campus alone, the department tends 1,000 trees and 16,000 shrubs.

   Year round, the department’s work continues in planning, maintaining and improving the green spaces that make Temple’s urban and suburban campuses spring to life.

   The grounds department is part of the Division of Support Services, Office of Facilities Management.
