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!

Yes, Robert! Nautically jaunty is exactly what we need - a treat - in a small urban park in a totally landlocked (smack in the middle of the Northern Hemisphere!) local.
