On a recent visit to Columbia, people discussed the need to improve the pavilion and the park enclosing it. On this visit, I reviewed and approved a plan for Symphony Woods Park. I'm told the Columbia Association and the Columbia Architects collaborated with CA staff and their consultants for four years. They assured me that the plan preserves 90 percent of the woodland landscape. I found that the pathways to the pavilion, the central gathering space, interactive fountain and café were appropriate as a setting for the pavilion and for the pleasure of the community.
