Pocket Parks
Brief Description Pocket parks are small pieces of land (up to 0.4 hectares) which the local community transform into a local amenity in a way that responds to local needs. The city of London created 100 Pocket Parks, making inviting public spaces for all people to enjoy and provide relief from busy urban life. Each Pocket Park is unique, and is designed to fit the needs and constraints of the area it is in.
