Leadership Houston Class XXX, contracted Asakura Robinson Company as the design firm or the new Memorial / Silver Triangle Park. The city-owned site was an unused triangle off of Memorial Drive close to downtown featuring a dozen beautiful mature oak trees. The park lies along the north Buffalo Bayou trail which connects to downtown by a pedestrian bridge over Memorial Drive. Concept design options helped the Leadership Houston Class raise $150,000 in privately-donated funds. The design and construction of phase one of the park, which includes walking trail, native trees and grass plantings, and site furnishings, was completed within a six-month time frame. Phase two of the design incorporates cozy seating nooks featuring mosaic tile design which face towards the downtown skyline views.
