Project Blue Earth Plaza

As a centerpiece to the South End Entertainment District, this distinctive urban park was designed to be an actively programmed space for 12 months of the year, and to facilitate a wide variety of uses in support of the adjacent Discovery Center, Hotel, and Conference Center. The highlights of the park include a large water feature with a display of music-synchronized laminar jets, a monumental warming fireplace, event plaza, lawn terrace and a seasonal shade structure with festival lighting.
