At Harborfront Parks, many native pollinator gardens have been added to increase habitat for bees, butterflies, and other pollinators. Recently these gardens are being replaced by more and more lawn spaces.  (See the images above). By observation, phone, email, and social media, I learned about the pleading desire to keep these pollinator gardens and not remove them!  I think the situation would be improved by balancing regenerative ecosystems and aesthetically pleasing landscapes. And there's at least one invasive, Lyme Grass (Leymus arenarius). It should be removed and instead replanted with our native American Beach Grass (Ammophila breviligulata). Conversations and actions are underway to balance biodiversity and aesthetics.
