With Opening of St. Lawrence Square, East Price Hill Welcomes New Gathering Space


St. Lawrence Square is the result of several years of work by glaserworks and landscape architects Human Nature to turn the community’s vision for a new park into reality. We worked with stakeholders and community leaders to transform what was once the site of a burned-down building into a beautiful new park and public space where the community can come together. Park features include a stage for live performances as well as a memorial wall and fountain honoring the five branches of U.S. Armed Forces.
