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.
