Schumacher Cascade Mills Park

Akron, Ohio
GPD designed this project to pay tribute to the history of this important site. A sculptural interpretation of the Schumacher Mill’s overshot wheel is the focal point of the park, and locally quarried sandstone defines the former perimeter of the mill. A performance stage was constructed in the shape of a horizontal wheel to support community gatherings.
