Pocket Park

Pocket Park’s restaurant deck and multi-use plaza will become active destinations within the surrounding neighborhood.  The restaurant deck’s and communal tables will encourage indoor/outdoor dining and socialization in an informal beer garden context, while the tree-shaded plaza will host daily activities and a range of small performances and events.  The plaza’s movable tables and chairs can be easily rearranged or removed to accommodate outdoor movies, music performances, weddings and various private events.  A steel post and cable framework retains the bamboo green screen along the garage and driveway edges of the park and provides an armature for mounting temporary art exhibitions and the outdoor movie screens.  Interpretive stormwater gardens treat runoff and provide desired separation between the private restaurant deck and the public plaza.  Sculptural seating terraces frame the south edge of the plaza, providing informal amphitheater seating and performance platforms for plaza activities.  Dimmable catenary lights allow nighttime atmosphere to be customized for specific activities.
