Pocket Parks | KCET
There are many vacant spaces or parking lots that serve as de facto public spaces. The City should look for opportunities to convert these places into pocket parks, with passive
uses or infill urban gardens. Throughout the community engagement process, community members expressed a desire to for smaller scape open spaces for informal gatherings.
Since pocket parks are generally small by nature, safety remains a paramount concern. We recommend pocket parks be located adjacent to schools and community centers, where organized functions create a safe environment. These pocket parks will also provide a linkage between residential and commercial domain. The tools developed by LA Open Acres, including a catalogue of vacant lots and ideas for community members to explore, is a helpful project reference.
