“Esperance” means “hope” in French. Snohomish County Parks and the Arts Commission propose to commission a site-specific sculptural element for the central area of the park that reflects “hope” in order to inspire park and community users and as a nod to the park’s name. The round public plaza has an 8-pointed star designed into the concrete to symbolize hope. The statue will be incorporated into the plaza.
