PADUCAH, KY – A new pocket park is underway at 5th and Broadway Streets where a 3-story building once stood in downtown Paducah.

Market Square ART Park is the most recent pocket park to open in June of  2016.

The new park will feature local art, kids play equipment and shaded pergolas built out of reclaimed wood that was saved after the building was torn down.

Broadway, also known as Paducah’s Main Street, is a beautiful historic street with renovation projects underway on almost every block from 5th Street to the River.

The newest opening on Broadway is the Highwater Fresh Bar at 3rd and Broadway. Right next door is the soon-to-open Citizen’s Gym with new Apartments being built upstairs.

And just across the street are the Wallerstein Apartments that will consist of four executive 1st-floor units.

Below is a view of the building in 2012 before it was torn down at 5th St. and Broadway St. where pocket park is going.
