The Sky Garden is an elliptical court in the center of the Hercules Library that provides a tranquil space for patrons. Inspired by the City of Hercules' historic reputation as the center for gun powder manufacturing, CMG designed a black, truncated cone to recall the form of a powder mound. In the Children’s Garden, a dense tree grove and shifting rubber ground wrap the architect’s 35 foot “Story Cove” which provides an outdoor environment for story telling and exploration.
