The redevelopment of the North Shore riverfront included a 2.7-acre sculpture park designed in 1983 by landscape architect R. Jackson Seay Jr. "Labor" was selected as a theme for the park, and each of the artists was asked to address that site. A riverfront walkway, docking facilities, and fishing access were also incorporated into the park. In 2010 a consortium of public and private partners began to collaborate on the renovation of the park and the conservation of the artworks with LaQuatra Bonci landscape architects.
