Mack's Pocket Playground

Mack’s Pocket Playground is a creative placemaking and urban intervention on the lower-eastside of Detroit that creates a pocket playground at the kitty-corner of Mack and Beals on an empty lot between Z’s Amazing Savings and MACC Development. On this lot we will introduce a portable playground that will be designed and installed for children in the neighborhood and the incoming café/laundromat at MACC Development to play and more importantly build community on the Mack Avenue Corridor.
