The DUC Park is Pocketparks very first park project. This park is currently in phase 1. We have cleaned the lot, installed doggie waste stations, completed half of our wall mural, and continue to push towards completion of phase 1! Click to learn more and see how you can help The DUC Park!
The West End Park is a sculpture garden designed for community engagement. The sidewalk divides the center lawn from the surrounding garden with a playful learning landscape painted on its surface. The garden hosts a variety of native plants as well as sculptures designed by young apprentices from STL Artworks.
In a partnership with the Cortex, 2 Acre Park conceptually links two critical sectors in our society, technology and agriculture; in a literal and whimsical way. The landscape design explores futuristic concepts from the the past, a crop circle. As the early era farmers were then, we are in awe of the advancements that science and technology are contributing to our farms and fields. DNA strand sculptures enhance the park concept and explain some amazing and local advances in plant based disciplines.
Pocketparks is collaborating with The Laclede's Landing Neighborhood to develop a Pocketpark under the MLK Bridge on Laclede's Landing Blvd. Click to vote for what type of park you'd like to see and complete a walking tour survey!
West End Gun Violence Memorial
One of our recent projects was a collaboration with Cornerstone CDC This sculpture, titled “Strength in Numbers”, is made with modules centered by a round hole to honor each victim of gun violence in the calendar year. The circular spaces are symbolic of the wound to both the victim’s physical body and the impact on the community because of their absence. If we stop the cycle, the sculpture will stay the same. Sadly, if more lives are lost, the sculpture will continue to grow.
This sculpture will be on display through November at the corner of Hodiamont and Etzel.
