The Container Park, as its namesake implies, is made entirely out of shipping containers. It serves as business incubator space, giving new entrepreneurs retail opportunities. The shipping containers which have been converted house businesses are simply too small to hold a full blown operation, but it is just large enough for a small shop. The other major features of the Container Park is a 40-foot tall fire breathing praying mantis, a Catalyst Dome, and a tree-house made entirely out of shipping containers. For more info about the Container Park can be found at http://downtowncontainerpark.com/
