Location: Highland Vicinity Park (29th and Capitol). In collaboration with the Highland Vicinity Neighborhood, Keep Indianapolis Beautiful, Boise Cascade, Synthesis and Indianapolis Fabrications, PUP developed and installed a shade structure for this amazing urban community. It was invisioned back in 2008, that the RCA Dome roof top would provide shade throughout Indianapolis.
