Floura Teeter was the landscape architect for a new urban children’s playground located in the heart of the Mount Vernon Historical District. The main entry off Calvert St. is focused on a stainless steel sculpture which resembles a wisteria covered arbor, a seating area for parents and a large sand box for small children. The park design includes using modern pieces of stainless steel play equipment, a large play structure, a water park designed for small children, new site lighting, and play surfacing. Brick retaining walls with steel fencing enclose and secure the park during off hours. The design team worked closely with the community association to select equipment and materials.
