The redesign of the Sister Cities garden breathes fresh life and activity into a nearly forgotten corner of Logan Square. Boasting a cafe, a fountain and a children’s garden, the new park draw visitors at different times of day, creating a vibrant, mutable space that can accommodate multiple activities.
I worked on the design of the children’s garden that was inspired by the Wissahickon Valley. Included in the design is a downhill stream that feeds into a boat pond. Native planting, in addition to boulders and a fallen tree, captures the experience of walking through the Wissahickon.
