Sunset Park

Ocean City, MD

Sunset Park transformed an asphalt road at the edge of the bay into a lively park where festivals, concerts, open air markets and other community events are held. The impervious coverage of the site was reduced by nearly 90% through the use of native vegetation and porous paving. These elements along with shade structures, pergolas, and pedestrian-centered circulation create an active social space while reconnecting visitors with the natural environment.
