Phoenix Waterway is  a multi-phased, city wide proposal that seeks to transform our canal system into a greenbelt of activity and connectivity'.  Light-beacons illuminate paths and highlight the Waterway's trajectory, making it visible throughout the city.  The project would most suitably originate in the Arcadia area, where an active canal culture is already thriving,  and would eventually extend to other parts of the city.  Public art pieces would be concentrated near intersections and other hubs. Landscape and hardscape phases would introduce low water use plants and trees, sitting benches, bike racks and other urban furniture, followed by pocket parks, amphitheaters, exercise circuits, food truck hookups, urban gardens, pedestrian bridges, and other public amenities.  Solar shades at larger public hubs would serve to power light-beacons and other path lighting.
