Forest Lane Station features stone support columns and limestone paving, blending with the nearby Floyd Branch, a curving creek with heavily landscaped banks. Sculptor Karl Ciesluk's ceramic mosaic piece reflects both the natural setting and the history of nearby Hamilton Park, an early residential community built for middle income African-Americans during a time when decent housing was denied in most Dallas neighborhoods. "'Against the Mainstream,' depicts fish swimming upstream, representing the determination of the African-Americans who spoke up for civil rights and decent housing," said Vicki Meek, the station design team artist.
