The effects of vacancy are severe. Vacancy blights neighborhoods, depreciates property values, and is associated with heightened crime. Pocketparks is dedicated to transform vacant lots into valuable community space to reverse these effects and build up our neighborhoods for the better. Not only do we develop outdoor space, but we also activate and maintain the space. In order to do this, we rely on the support of our communities, our volunteers, and our donors. Help us bring art, activation, and opportunity to neighborhoods around the city.
