Rosa Parks Park

Pat Ward Williams

The rose serves as a visual theme for the Rosa Parks Park. The artwork consists of an 8′ x 5′ perforated iron panel with added color. Pictured on this panel, nestled in the roots of a “Heritage Tree” is a portrait of Rosa Parks. This panel is central to the public bus plaza. In addition, there are twenty-six 16” x 16” black granite paver tiles sandblasted with different “Rosa” motifs and Rosa Parks biographic information. These tiles are randomly placed on approximately 150′ of park walkway.
