Project Narrative

After a truly remarkable makeover, the park now includes an upgraded Meredith Gardens, with labyrinth of raised masonry planters that will be used as community gardens. Mandel Park is crisscrossed with swales that provide a sophisticated, underground drainage system that doubles as a rain garden with an array of plantings. A recycled shipping container provides on-site storage and is topped with a living “Green Roof”. A large set of composting bins with an ingenious sliding cover enhances the community’s involvement and participation in sustainable practices.
