More from Sloan's Lake
The new jetty project at Denver's Sloan's Lake Park includes an observation/picnic area at the end of the promenade. I like the shade structures that were selected for this small space:
The scale is appropriate to the size of the area
The sail-like material and shape of the canopy is appropriate to the setting
The form of the support structures echo the branching of nearby trees and the wings of the ubiquitous Canada geese.
I predict that this new space will become a very popular asset for the park and its visitors!
