Pocket Park's 'Architectural Feature:' Yay or Nay?
Part of new park's surface is pervious hard surface instead of grass.
On days like Friday, when the temperature was expected to get close to 50 degrees, a place like Washington Street's new "pocket park" may be just the place to take one's lunch. It sure beats looking at an old, empty building.
The "Pocket Park" has four benches, a large patch of grass and ... an architectural feature. Dubbed this by County Engineer Steve Hammond, the so-named feature is a pervious hard surface, which bystander Amanda Thiem wondered, "Are they going to put Hop Scotch on this?"
Hammond said in December the pervious surface would serve a similar purpose to the grassy area. "We'll see how it holds up in the winter time," he said. "It may change in the spring, but we'll have to see."
With nearly a month to digest this new space in Morristown, we wanted to ask: What do you think of the "architectural feature" at the pocket park? Is it a blank canvas ripe for usage? Or, are you not even sure why it's there? Chime in below.
