Fulton County Water Garden and Streetscape (pictured above)
The Center’s water garden, which opened in 1989, and was designed by world-renowned landscape architect M. Paul Friedberg, will undergo a $1.4 million modernization preserving the original architectural integrity of the garden, improving the pedestrian circulation, and enhancing the beauty of the landscape with the using of native, adapted, and aquatic plants. The vision of the project is to create a more welcoming front door to the county that greets the thousands of Fulton County employees, residents and visitors every year.
Friedberg, a recipient of the American Society of Landscape Architects’ medal – the highest honor for a landscape architect – has also designed other noteworthy public spaces, such as Pershing Park in Washington D.C., the 67th Street Playground in New York, and Peavey Plaza in Minneapolis.
