World Landscape Architecture Month: Frederick Y. Ward Reckord Armory Park


Join us for World Landscape Architecture Month as we celebrate growing together with each other and with nature in our communities.

Located in downtown Bel Air, the Frederick Ward Park at Reckord Armory is both a gathering area and a passive use walkway for Main Street pedestrians. Dedicated to Frederick Y. Ward, founder of Frederick Ward Associates, this pocket park was designed with togetherness in mind, complete with seated meeting areas, performance stage, and accessible courtyard. FWA’s design drew from the historic look of the armory building and incorporated sustainable features such as permeable pavers, a green wall, ample softscape, minimal direct lighting, and renewable materials.
