Neighborhood Park Perspective looking West. The entire neighborhood pivots around and focusses on the central park-green. The park includes a football/soccer/lacrosse field, tennis court, totlot-play strucure, sand volleyball courts, and a shelter for small gatherings. Most homes front either the central park-green, or focus on boulevard streetscapes, ponding and amenity settings.

Perspective View of the linear trail along Manning Ave. Connections from the trail to Manning Station meander around a seriers of planted berms. These berms act as a visual and sound barrier between Manning Ave. and Manning Station.

Perspective View of the North End of the site. The rail line shown is a historic railroad line operated by the Minnesota Zephyr.

Neighborhood Park Perspective looking North. Note that the homes are house-dominant with "tamed" garages.
