KIB, the UHNA, and the University envision an accessible and vibrant greenspace for this now vacant lot. Creating a place where community members would be able to meet and children would be able to learn about the natural environment. Native trees and grasses would flourish and public gatherings would be frequent. The space would also serve to link the University Heights community with the University of Indianapolis as residents, students, staff, and faculty would all be able to utilize this space.

A partnership between KIB, the University Heights Neighborhood Association (UHNA), and the University of Indianapolis will transform the former site of a vacant apartment building into a community pocket park and greenspace. The park will serve to focal point for neighborhood get together, offer teaching opportunities about native plants and the natural landscape, and provide an aesthetically pleasing space that will promote an active lifestyle.
