The Coleman Oval Park, situated partly under the Manhattan Bridge, has long suffered from lack of exposure, little upkeep, and the “off the beaten path” factor.

By re-imagining the park and developing its program specifically to suit the unique character and demographic mix of the surrounding neighborhood, Coleman Oval Park has the potential to become a true focal point for the local community.

With the new skate park as the cornerstone of the revitalization of the Coleman Oval Park, we propose a plug-and-play design strategy that can be developed in phases while still establishing a strong overall, comprehensive design strategy.

“By creating a park that emphasizes and underlines local diversity Coleman Oval Park has the potential to become a one of a kind city park, simply by accommodating the potential of the dense urban area it sits within: the secret is in the mix,” said Jens Holm, founder, HAO.
