As part of the Capital District Land Bank’s efforts to improve local neighborhoods, Tribute Park was created from three vacant parcels as a way to revitalize the surrounding neighborhood and spur positive development. Tribute Park is a simple yet elegant park organized around a large, open lawn that allows for flexible programming. Amenities include a spray park, a seating terrace, recreational sidewalks, benches, and an open green. The spray park was designed to double as an informal stage or plaza. A playground is planned for the near future.
LAndArt Studio provided the design and construction documents for implementation and assistance in the design-build of the spray park and community implemented planting. Principal Mary Moore Wallinger also spearheaded the Master Plan while working as an Independent Contractor prior to founding LAndArt Studio.
