Visitors can also check out a climate change-themed mini golf course.

The putting green will feature 18 holes spanning a 15,000 square foot tiered deck on the riverfront, each designed by a different community partner.

The mini golf course was designed to illustrate some of the most pressing climate change concerns.

"By partnering with dozens of local organizations and environmental stewards throughout the city, we hope to elevate the conversation about climate change and our personal and collective roles in these issues, while at the same time immediately providing much needed beautiful open space for the community," said Jed Walentas, Principal of Two Trees Management.

Developers say the location will be a space for people to learn about the environment, local food production, and composting.
