  • Brief Description

    The design scheme envisions a natural respite with an open and informal habitat meadow to framed by a dense landscape edge that contrasts with the park’s urban context. The new park will be a neighborhood hub that allows for small community gatherings and activities, children’s play, explorations in ‘nature’, walks along a looped pathway, or simply sitting on a park bench. The park includes a small playground with a large bird-like play feature, a small approximately 400 square foot Stewardship Building (which will include a restroom, storage and maintenance space), groves of trees along the park edges and a central habitat meadow with two deck areas for visitors to enjoy. The central habitat meadow feature recalls the site’s past as a rich intertidal landscape and creates a sampling of biodiverse habitat that will attract birds and butterflies to the urban park and enrich the lives of its residents. The park is designed to be a sustainable and contemporary public open space.
