Date

Location
Site: Boston (Massachusetts, USA)
Description
View of serpentine path of the park. Red scaffold-like structures which support and frame the bamboo can be seen as well as the fountain.
Additional Information: Located just outside the traditional Chinatown Gate at Beach Street that marks the entrance to Boston's Chinatown neighborhood, Chinatown Park is built over the site of an abandoned off-ramp from the Central Artery Dewey Square tunnel and is approximately 3/4 of an acre. It was the first of the parks to be completed. The southern portion of the park's design responds to the social life of the Asian community by providing an open plaza. The northern end is a serpentine path through gardens. The contemporary red steel cantilevered gateway serves as a counterpoint to the traditional gate at Beach Street. All aspects of the park are united by the use of concrete pavers. In addition, there is an installation by May Sun titled the Chinese Chess Plaza near the Chinatown Gate at Beach Street.
