SALT DESIGN STUDIO was invited by Mural Arts Philadelphia to help redesign and renovate a defunct spraypark at Shissler Recreation Center.

Evoking the power of water in everyday life, the design juxtaposes bluestone paving underfoot, native grasses to capture spillover, seats of historic millstones and arcing jets of water. Local residents responded enthusiastically to the new design improvements, which are part of an ongoing City effort to revitalize the Fishtown neighborhood and enhance its connection to the Delaware River.

Collaborator: Beverly Fisher, artist
