Crossroads Community Park provides a rich and imaginative setting where people of all ages and diverse cultural backgrounds can interact and communicate through play. The design uses the metaphor of a village as its organizing principle; a network of paths represents the village streets, providing access to buildings and play equipment. A terrazzo map of the world, identifying Bellevue’s four sister cities, orients the visitor. An adjacent play meadow provides space for sports and informal play. Portico developed a long range plan for the park, as well as design documents for the initial implementation phase.
