Cambridge Arts Council commissioned Bart Uchida to create a work of public art for the Park that was renovated in 2004. The Park had been the site of community gardens for twenty-five years, and a tall rambling rose vine that flourished during that period of time had taken on symbolic significance. Bart Uchida has created an artistic archway to support the rose vine, which previously had been rambling over a chain link fence.
