About A B Ernst Park

In the shadows of the Fremont Library you can find this small park with its spiraling path and stairways. It’s an interesting park to check out during a rainstorm when the water is flowing through the orange gutter sculpture.

Built on a steep hillside, Ernst Park is comprised of a spiraling path of water-permeable concrete, bordered by artful garden-bed walls that park designer Lynn Thompson created to serve as seating. The path spirals down from N 35th St. to a small amphitheater, and continues down via stairway to N 34th St. The sloped plant beds are landscaped with barberry and other sustainable native vegetation.
