Carr, Lynch and Sandell prepared a master plan and schematic design for Cascade Park in central Tallahassee, Florida. This 29-acre park is part of a city wide flood control system. As the new “Central Park” for the State Capitol, Cascade Park has been designed to provide stimulus for development of the adjacent urban areas. Public art will interpret and celebrate the cultural and natural history of the area. A performance stage with a natural amphitheater that will hold 4000-5000 people is planned for at the centre of the park. Other elements include a relocated
and restored 19th Century African-American school house and baseball diamond “Parterre” on the site of an early 20th Century ball park, interpreting a sporting history of the city.
