Reinventing the Urban Park

“Reinventing the Urban Park” – Seattle Olympic Sculpture Park

In our busy daily lives, especially for most of the U.S. city dwellers trapped in concrete jungles, it has been becoming essential to have a doze of nature.

There may be many ways to use previously contaminated land. But by restoring the land with public resources that seamlessly blends the built environment of downtown with a healthy and meticulously maintained natural environment, the Olympic Sculpture Park shows that urban life and natural environment can be mutually respectful and even complementary. The park also brings necessary environmental education to the public, while providing free mental nourishment in the form of art and natural views.

I hope to see more thoughtful urban development like this park in the future, and hopefully I can be the one who accomplishes it by my own hands someday.
