HW's Role: In 2012 Heritage Works was approached by its neighbors to be the nonprofit leader of a pocket park development project at the intersection of Rosa Parks Boulevard and M. L. King Junior Boulevard. With the input of residents, Burton International Academy - DPS students, community youth, and other stakeholders along with the partnership of our neighborhood association and landscape architect Jeff Klein, we transformed vacant lots previously used for dumping into a pocket park that commemorates two great Americans and reflects the values of our community. In addition to a great space, this effort resulted in increased social cohesion and a desire to continue transforming our community. From this work grew a garden project with the Freedom House, resident-driven design guidelines, a NoCo cultural amenities plan and more.
