About

Situated between the Central Area and Capitol Hill, the 7,332 square-foot park completed in early 2016 is considered part of both of those communities. This is a woonerf-designed park which provides pedestrians and cyclists priority on the street. This technique of shared spaces, traffic calming, and low speed limits contributes to improved pedestrian, bicycle, and automobile safety.

The artistic sculptural canopy structure called "Cloud Veil" that hovers over a rounded "pillow" and the wavy concrete paving design grew out of a collaboration with Hewitt Architects, artist Ellen Sollod and the community. The park's unique design also includes rain gardens to extend the feeling of open space for the entire block on E. James Court, a single east-bound lane.
