Raintree is centrally located and visible to passers-by on the street as well as from all areas of the park.

Artist's statement: Located in the center of Cromwell Park within the lowest part of the landscaped stormwater runoff area, Raintree honors the setting and history of the site. The sculpture takes its inspiration from the stormwater and bog characteristics of the ground plane environment, while addressing rain as the source of the water.

This abstracted tree form with a visible root ball suggests the flow and growth of vein patterns that are found in both plants and water. Raintree is fabricated out of metal and highlighted with blue glass beads, durable materials that will respond to many kinds of ambient light.
