Saginaw Street at the Flint River

Urban Planner: Lawrence Halprin, 1977

Internationally acclaimed architect and urban planner Lawrence Halprin designed the miles of park, fountains, bridges, falls, a fish ladder, and an amphitheater as part of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers flood control project. Working from conceptual designs developed with input from the public, Halprin executed the design in his trademark style of layering bold flat surfaces of concrete, softened by landscape and water features, which invite human interaction and play.
