Friends of Pretzel Park

Pretzel Park is graced with mature trees, old stone walls and stairs, and twisting pathways. The park is in need of repairs and a strategy to connect it to the larger neighborhood. The Collaborative’s conceptual design provides a game plan for improving the park’s playground, dog park, and entrances. New seating, lighting, a hillside slide, and a rain garden make the park more engaging for everyone.
