​This artscape includes a permanent shade structure designed to make the outdoor seating space useable year round. Native landscaping creates additional shade, introduces color, and induces the visitation of hummingbirds, etc. A screening wall makes the area intimate. A ceramic mural depicts birds and animals common to the area. An outdoor barbecue grill is also included. This was a collaborative project between Price and Michael Costello.​
