60 Landscape Architect and Specifier News The James Continued from page 58 Phyllis A. Jones Legacy Park Just south of the Forecourt spanning 10th avenue, the 2.4-acre Jones Legacy Park provides a dramatic "front" lawn to the new James. The identical brick used in the Oval's central promenade is repeated as the primary paving material in the park. Paving materials, site furnishings and the iconic serenade of the Orton Hall chimes, programmed into the light pole speaker system, were all part of the final design and link back to the history at Ohio State. Gerbig, Snell/Weisheimer Children's Park Tucked behind Jones Legacy Park, the Gerbig, Snell/Weisheimer Children's Park is a place for outdoor play for OSU Medical Center's younger visitors. The custom children's playground was designed to accommodate universal play.
