Downtown Park

This is part of a small 1/2 acre park, Cloud Gardens, that is located in the midst of the downtown financial district. Since it was so small the designers went up with terraces, bridges and ramps leading across a waterfall and eventually to a small conservatory. This section shows some of the ramps backed by a monument to all the construction workers who have toiled on the surrounding towers. Each square represents a different trade.

I like all those panels, it adds an uniqueness to the area. I also like that the guy at the bottom was included.
