More images from a busy summer of public art. Raintree is located in the stormwater runoff pond at the newly redesigned Cromwell Park in Shoreline. A collaboration between Public Works and the Parks and Recreation Department, this park was transformed from a flat grass lot to an undulating, functional and more naturalized gathering place.
Many logs were unearthed from the boggy ground during regrading, some of which remain exposed as landscaping features. This work draws influence from them, the purpose of the site, and the flow that occurs between the exchange of water there.
