“Two Hills” selected as winning pocket park design

Scott Wiley’s Two Hill Park is the winner of the Jefferson Avenue Pocket Park Design Competition.

The park is envisioned to have two hills, a water feature, trees, benches, and a gateway sign, all arranged to echo the connection between Union Hill and Church Hill. Wiley says that his design for the triangular parcel bounded by Clay, Jefferson, and 23rd Streets “celebrates the rich history of two adjacent communities, fosters respect and stewardship of the natural environment, affords environmental education, and preserves valuable green space for future generations.”

More photos from last night’s presentation and voting are at the BHC Facebook page.

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 in Richmond. Better Housing Coalition (BHC) and BHC’s 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.

The goal is to submit a final design to appropriate City departments by Spring 2015 with fundraising to take place soon after, with installation to occur sometime in 2016.

A park with no seating (no, benches outside the park and facing the street don’t count)?

I was told by a BHC leader that the junior board group was still fundraising for it. Meanwhile that elm tree is looking pretty great.
