Hi Robert,
No, not Christo. This is what I could find at:

"In 1988, the Palo Alto Public Arts Commission started a national search to 
select an artist and landscape architect to design a public park from a 
converted landfill. The chosen design team consisted of artists Peter 
Richards and Michael Oppenheimer and Hargreaves Landscape Architects and 
Planners. George Hargreaves, who is a graduate of and a professor at 
Harvard's Graduate School of Design, and his firm have transformed sites 
into works of art around the world. Locally, their designs include the 
Candlestick Point Cultural Park, San Jose's Guadalupe River Park and Plaza 
Park, and San Francisco's Crissy Field restoration. Though like most works 
of art, there has been controversy over some of Byxbee Park's artistic 
features, the park was recognized with an Honor Award for excellence from 
the American Society of Landscape Architects in 1993 and an Outstanding 
Achievement, City Livability Award, from the US Conference of Mayors in

Very nice shot of that installation.   Is Christo involved in that?
