Landscape Architects: Atelier LOIDL
Built on the site of a former rail yard, this new modern park carves a green oasis out of the urban wilderness that had taken hold of the site after the discontinued use of the rail yard. So much activity at this park! Playgrounds for kids of all ages, a skate park, basketball courts, a community garden, paths, and a beautiful lawn. While I was visiting there was an event going on hosted by a radio station, there were so many people hanging out, listening to music and enjoying the atmosphere.
