A Pop-Up Park (Pocket Park) with games and activities for pedestrians of all ages was opened this weekend at the corner of 10th and Locust in Downtown St. Louis. It certainly brightened up Downtown and turned an empty plot into a place to play games or just to relax and enjoy the day.

Samantha says by, “Using a human-centric approach, we can elevate the urban experience to one that is safe, beautiful, active, and diverse. We are creating a platform using parks to reactivate the streets and build up the ecosystem of our city.” (source https://www.pocketparks.co/learn-more)
