IPL Project GreenSpace: Highland Vicinity Pocket Park

2902 and 2905 N. Capitol Ave.


Keep Indianapolis Beautiful partnered with Boise Aspen Recycled Paper’s Project Up Campaign, the Alliance for Community Trees, People for Urban Progress, Synthesis Incorporated and Near North CDC to transform a long neglected, former brownfield site at 29th and Capital Avenue into a community asset. We contracted with Smock Fansler to do a lot of the site work and to install a concrete sidewalk.

We worked with a group of over 70 volunteers in September to plant a mostly native landscape of trees, shrubs and grasses. In total, we planted over 24 trees on this site including honey locust, red maple, cedar and serviceberry. This project will eventually include a shade structure made of recycled RCA Dome fabric and benches containing recycled paper.
