2022_OCASLA Summer Educational_Lock 3 Park Tour
Members and Non-Members
Building on GPD’s strong relationship with the City of Akron, they partnered with Olin Studio to reenvision the park while creating a safe and functional space. Lock 3 Park is the main gathering space in the core of downtown Akron, with the Ohio & Erie Canalway bordering the site. The design reconsiders the multiple programs that exist within the park today, while creating a more accessible and noticeable space that maintains flexibility for everyday use. We will explore the current conditions and review planning documents and renderings for the future design.
