SCAPE designed the 103rd Street Community Garden in East Harlem for the New York Restoration Project, a non-profit organization founded by Bette Midler to transform open space in underserved neighborhoods of New York City. SCAPE worked closely with NYRP on community programming & outreach and to facilitate construction of the park with a team of volunteers and local stakeholders. The park includes raised planters for organic gardening, a refurbished basketball court, an open picnic area that can be used as an outdoor theater, a new kid-inspired playground, and two shade structures, featuring pitched roofs and rain barrels to collect rain water for on-site irrigation use. Involved from day-one, local volunteers, marshaled by NYRP and Disney, literally built the park in a period of months. (Scape Landscape Architecture LLP)
