The High Line on NYC's west side may represent the ultimate pocket park.
Essentially, an abandoned train trestle fairly universally hated as a dark, unseemly, and hulking structure was slated for demolition - an action strongly supported by the neighborhood associations in the area.
Until two guys happened to attend a public meeting and recognized the structure represented a unique opportunity. Persevering, over years, they worked to transform it into a public park.
Against all odds, new walkable places can be created.
Shade Parade Nashville strongly encourages you to consider underutilized spaces in your neighborhood as potential places for pocket parks.
