Director Park

Director Park Review

Low on greenery but high on gathering space, this is the newest addition to the city's downtown park blocks. Opened in 2009, it was designed as a public piazza that hides the 700-space parking garage below. A glass canopy/light display provides cover and a fountain dedicated to teachers cools off summer visitors. Chess players will enjoy the giant (16-foot by 16-foot) board with 25-inch high pieces, available on a first come, first served basis.
