This small, elegant park at Rainier Vista melds art, community gardens and simple gathering spaces into a memorable destination for neighbors. Design included an innovative “serrated edge” seatwall between the gardens and the sculpture-filled plaza. Runoff from the central plaza is directed into a cascading rain garden beside the main entry.
