Firstside Park is located across the street from the PNC Firstside Center, a silver-rated LEED-certified building on the site of a former B&O Railroad terminal. The park was also constructed using environmentally-friendly practices. For example, it was built using 2,500 tons of recycled concrete from a demolished public safety building. The 1.5-acre park is an urban oasis; perennials, ferns, ornamental grasses, and deciduous trees surround undulating pathways. These lead to Guibara’s sculptures of monkeys, rabbits, and frogs.
Albert Guibara (b. 1944) is a sculptor from California. He most often works in bronze.
