From 1997 to 2006, Heritage Landscapes planned and implemented projects to preserve and revitalize the Camden Library Grounds and Amphitheatre, designed by Fletcher Steele (1928-1931), and the adjacent Harbor Park, designed by Frederick Law Olmsted Jr.'s firm (1930-1935). The final project restored the Fauns Garden sculpture, pool and plantings, and installed Steele's Compass of the Winds, 75 years after it was approved. Townspeople and tourists make daily use of this revitalized green space.
