Last week saw great progress at the People’s Park construction site! The traditional paving is done and the masons began their work on the brick seatwall and plaza, which look great. Check out the photos below.
One cool bonus feature is the “echo chamber” effect the curved seatwall has when you stand in the very center of the small plaza. This is similar to the interesting sounds qualities of many rotunda type locations, including the US Capitol Building.
Next steps for the park include capping the seatwall, pouring the permeable concrete and developing the planting plan. If you have ideas for what native or drought tolerant plant species should be included, please comment here or contact me.
