Arlington Presbyterian Church creates ‘sacred public space’

The ongoing story of Arlington Presbyterian Church. To summarize so far, APC revisioned its property as a community resource for affordable housing. They sold the property to a developer, with plans to build apartments. The church will lease space for itself in the building once its finished.
In the meantime, they’ve used some of the money from the sale to buy back a portion of the land and create a park.
What vision!

Since the developer didn’t need about a quarter of the Columbia Pike property, why not create a small pocket of green space there to cushion the concrete in the highly urban neighborhood and provide a space of reflection and revival?
