The team created a serpentine path with concrete and landscape pavers to comprise the park’s Positive Mental Attitude Walk. Sleek, sheet metal signage features laser-cut inspirational messages illuminated from behind.

Raised concrete planters—both precast and cast-in-place—are further accented with LED lighting. Landscaping softens hard lines with a mix of perennials and annuals, as well as sugar maples, dogwoods and maidenhair trees.
