KIB and WNM envision a transformed space, from an underutilized vacant lot to a vibrant community gathering space. Utilizing native grasses and design, the park will work to decrease water runoff from nearby hardscapes. The space would bring people together with opportunities for gardening, learning, and enjoying nature. This new pocket park would also incorporate public art and seating to allow people to linger in the park.
2305 E. New York St.
In 2014, KIB will work with Westminster Neighborhood Ministries to transform four lots on the southeast corner of New York St. & Beville Ave. into a pocket park for the local community, to complement Westminster’s new adult services community center. The space will serve as a defined gathering space for reflection, meditation and nature education.
