Mr. Trott was part of a team led by Dahlkemper Landscaping that designed this special park which provides a safe and natural playscape environment for children impacted by domestic violence.  Valuable consultation was also given by Ken Finch of Green Hearts INC (Institute for Nature in Childhood).

This project transformed an inner city cluster of three residential lots into a nature elements-themed park to provide therapeutic play space for children and their parents that are impacted/displaced by domestic violence.  The park elements are numerous, including a stage, a "beach" area, natural wooden site furniture for the kids to gather in various types of outdoor spaces, plant-shaded pathways, a small "babbling" brook, a rustic wooden shelter, a rustic wooden footbridge (future), soft pathways for foot travel, paved pathways for wheeled toys, a "mogul" area, and sunny open space.
