Rhodes Park sits in an area that makes it difficult to remember serene nature-scapes. Roads wrap around this small park and at first notice that sounds uncomfortable and constricting. Yet Rhodes Park becomes a unique sanctuary for the wild and free ideas of nature. The soaring essence of a kickflip, the cat-like pounce of a turn vault, skateboarding, parkour and other urban sports remind us we are still wild. Our intent was to design and build artwork that would give the visitor a sense of place—blurring the lines between urban and the wild aspects of nature. Reminding us the importance of entertaining our more natural selves while being encapsulated in an urban environment.
