Terraced into the hillside on the right is a quiet green space. The fabricated canvas of COR-TEN steel plate was created by SSSNA board member and architect Peter Kreuthmeier and installed against a curved retaining wall. The scrim replicates a section of a Slopes neighborhood from a lot and block map. An Elm Street project, it was dedicated in 2007 and is one of six gardens maintained by SSSNA members.
