This small, grassy, pocket park is tucked in between the parking lots of Impression 5 Museum and the R.E. Olds Transportation Museum. Do to the popular location is located near two family friendly cultural organizations an interactive sculpture would be a great option for this site.
Elm Park Near the Baseball Field
This park is a popular space for families and neighbors! This area has a large, concrete base that is a great space for a sculpture. Due to the fact that this is a popular space for families, an interactive sculpture or installation would be a great fit for this site.
