Middle: The colorful and railed suspended walk over the bioretention area integrates with the adjacent paving pattern through steel bar grating and native black locust planks. Stainless steel 'Bola' bike racks run along the building's planting bed, which is edged in limestone.

The seat wall has surface mounted 'Skate Stops'.
