Jefferson Pocket Park Design Competition offers $500 prize

Entries are now being accepted for the Jefferson Pocket Park Design Competition. The window for new submissions closes on October 17, 2014 at 5:00 PM.

All submissions will be considered by a local jury with the winner receiving a $500 cash prize. Judges will select the winning pocket park design at a public event on Thursday, October 30th, at the East District Family Resource Center (2405 Jefferson Avenue).

The Jefferson Pocket Park competition aims to beautify and transform the Jefferson Avenue corridor into a cherished, environmentally friendly community space focusing on the triangular plot of land at 2221 Jefferson Avenue. Better Housing Coalition and their junior board have collaborated with Storefront for Community Design, Friends of Jefferson Park, and the Enrichmond Foundation to support the competition and development of the pocket park.

See jeffersonpocketpark.com/ for entry guidelines and additional information. The goal is to submit a final design to appropriate City departments by Spring 2015 with fundraising to take place soon after, with installation in 2016. Please email jeffersonpocketpark@gmail.com if you have any questions.
