We are planning a couple of work days in the pocket parks! Mark your calendars for –

Saturday June 27th at 25th & Keeler

Saturday July 11th at 27th & Kildare

We will start around 9:30am, feel free to bring any tools you think we might need. For June 27th at 25th & Keeler we are planning on putting together a couple more raised beds for vegetables, hopefully taking soil samples for testing and moving the pile of dirt to the back of the lot.

The pocket parks project in Little Village is well on its way and we are very excited to be creating such beautiful and inspiring community spaces. Now as the parks are starting to come together, we are going to get the blog up and running as well. This blog is hopefully going to be used for a variety of different updates on a regular basis including:

  • Background information on the sites and design charrettes for each site
  • Design information and lists of tasks that can be done in the parks
  • Upcoming work days and events
  • DIY step by step instructions for specific elements in the parks
  • Feature articles highlighting other pocket parks and influential people in this pocket park project

Having this information all together on a collaborative site will be a great tool as we move forward with building and maintaining the pocket parks. So, stop by often to keep up to date with the project and leave us a comment or send us an email at with suggestions of things you would like to see on the blog.

27th and Kildare as of 6/6/09
