This hands-on event included design exercises, a site visit, and group discussion of what was desirable and feasible for the 0.2-acre site, currently a gravel parking lot. The session was facilitated by a professional landscape architect from Copley Wolff Design Group who synthesized the groups' ideas into a conceptual design. The proposed design calls for a flexible passive recreation space incorporating a walking path, open lawn, trees, ornamental shrubs, benches, a shade structure, and a small plaza at the corner.
