The sketches have been drawn, and now it’s up to the community to decide how the new park at 19th and Madison should look.
Landscape artist J.A. Brennan & Associates and public artist Carolyn Law designed the three sketches, which were unveiled at the design meeting March 27.
A slide, amphitheater, climbing sculpture, interactive wall, sensory garden and picnic area are just some of the suggested design features that would transform the 4,500 square foot lot at the corner of 19th and Madison into a tranquil green, urban oasis.
The team developed the designs with help from a public survey, which reported that the majority of people would use the park to walk through (28%) or see while passing by (25%). The 170 respondents also said their vision for the park includes green space, a garden and art work.
Here are the proposed sketches, from the Steering Committee:
The Steering Committee invites the public to review the preferred plan at its next meeting May 28 from 6:30 to 8:30 PM at the Hearing, Speech & Deafness Center – 1625 19th Ave, 1st floor conference room.
