Small Neighbourhood Park, John Hay Neighbourhood Association, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (1950)
This project series documents Cornelia Hahn Oberlander's design for a small neighbourhood park for the John Hay Association at the corner of Marshall Street and Wharton Street in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The park is now known as Gold Star Park. Oberlander worked on this project in 1950 while working for the Citizen's Council on City Planning (CCCP) as community planner. The playground includes a circular play area on concrete pavement with a sandbox in the middle, and a quiet area with seatting separated from the play area by large shade trees.
The project series contains only a landscape plan of the playground.
