Project Details

The "Oakdale Pocket Park" will serve as an outdoor community hub for residents in the West Hill neighborhood. The West Hill Neighborhood Organization is already underway in engaging the community to plan the park. There are scheduled meetings throughout the summer. Some initial drafts include: benches and picnic tables for seating, fruit trees and bushes open to the community for grazing, and a pergola for performances. WHNO will coordinate programming with local community groups so that the park is a constant buzz of community activity.
