Pocket Park Contest - Design the space you would like to hang out in in downtown Parkersburg
Downtown Parkersburg Market Street, from 8th to 2nd
Have you seen those communities that introduce art into their surroundings by focusing on a theme, such as cows or pigs. or quilt squares for example? It allows citizens to participate in designing community art. That is what we are doing with the pocket park contest. Instead of cows or pigs or quilt squares, we are asking citizens to design small parks. We are PARKersburg, afterall. Park!
