Celebrating 60 Years: The Avalon Hotel Courtyard


Thursday Jan 15th, 2015

In 2002 the Avalon asked Dahlkemper Landscape Architects & Contractors to look at its struggling courtyard.

The result in this narrow area was an elevated water feature and shade tolerant plantings to create a backdrop to the smaller ballroom. Water helps to bring nature back into a downtown urban environment and softens the sounds of the city. The courtyard then functions as an extension of the ballroom for events for the Avalon and provides and attractive amenity for photos and visitors. Improving the environment where we recreate.

Thank you so much for the beautiful backyard. I have been enjoying it so much! My "magical" lights still delight me and no further news from neighbors. The whole effect in the yard far exceeded my expectations. You and Mike did an outstanding job!

Thanks Again
Rose Weber
