Art Installation
The park also features public art commissioned by the City of the Dublin. "Divided Sea," by artist Ned Kahn from Sebastopol, California, is a site-specific artwork designed for the water element at the entrance of Emerald Glen Park.
The arched 100-foot-long water feature consists of 60, 9-inch-wide polished stainless steel plates from which sheets of water emanate. The angle of the mirrored surface reflects the wave patterns from the water surface below.
