This pocket park community playground is located in Hatboro, Pennsylvania. Two community meetings were held to get ideas and feedback for the proposed park, including a playground, t-ball field, basketball courts, a walking trail, picnic tables and benches. The neighboring theater is a community playhouse. Picking up on this theme, the playground has a stage and a car for a ‘drive in’ theatre. Designed for all ages, this park is well used and helps to build up the community in meaningful ways. From moms pushing their kids in a stroller, to teens playing pick up on the courts, there’s always a need for outdoor recreation in local neighborhoods.
The landscape creates structure and defines areas for active and passive recreation. Perennials, grasses, trees and shrubs give the park a natural setting where kids can explore their environment. Elm Street Hatboro headed up the plan for constructing a lighted, paved, walkway leading from Springdale Avenue into Tanner Park linking Village Players Theatre. Bricks were engraved to raise money and awareness of the need for park improvements for a safe place to play.
