Wales' work for this small park provides an interactive "field guide" to wildlife in Cambridgeport, both of the time (when the area was a marsh) and now. The 600-pound carp at the center of the park and embedded bronze dragonflies, crabs, and tortoise surrounding it are outsized versions of the creatures that once swam, scuttled, and flew here.
