Description:

This ornamental fence defines Crawford Street Park. The park was created through the joint efforts of local community organizations, and the fence’s wave-like floral pattern symbolizes the organizations’ persistence in achieving their goal. Designed by sculptor Ben Tau, the fence echoes traditional Jamaican metal silhouette art. It was installed in 2005 with funding from the Edward Ingersoll Browne Trust Fund.
