Charles Greene developed a landscape plan for this commercial exposition of over 69,000 square feet sited at a long, elliptical oval. The auto displays were situated on the outer ring of the oval as well as within the inner circle. One plan shows the names of the car manufacturers and accessories makers, including Stevens, Duryea, Stearns-Elmore and Pierce Arrow. The largest space, at 2450 square feet, was rented to Peerless Everett. Charles Greene designed a stream that meandered through the infield of the exposition, where there was a central pool and waterfall. At one end of the ellipse was a large restaurant space.
