Library Story Park

Project Summary

Located on a prominent corner of downtown Wilmington and at the front door to the county’s main library, Library Story Park reinvents this urban park public space for public use as well as a space for library programs and events, primarily focused on children. The design resolves safety concerns by increasing visibility throughout the site, strengthening connections to adjacent streets and improving the relationship between the site and the library.

Our team worked closely with county and library staff to establish a programmatic vision for the site, create design options and select the final design.
 
The streetscape perimeter of the park is redefined creating a sense of entry into the library while flexible spaces for children programs and events are centrally located and defined.
