This grant funded project undertaken for the Immokalee Community Redevelopment Agency is located on Immokalee’s most prominent corner and was completed in April 2014. With the use of xeriscaping, crushed shell paving, concrete and steel, the park will be rugged and require little maintenance.
The design was developed in collaboration with the citizens of Immokalee. The central organizing element of the park is an existing pathway that divides the park in halves. The pathway is maintained and celebrated with an arcade of sabal palms and festival lights. A wall that will provide a backdrop for future art and a shade trellis line the west edge, while a multipurpose pavilion and rain garden anchor the north end.
