Blue Sailboat Bench in Pollock Place Park

Location: Between Pollock Place, Taylor Street, and Merriman Avenue

This childrenís playground results from the tenacious vision of Amy Baker and other neighborhood parents who pulled together to build this playground and neighborhood meeting place on city property.

Neighborhood residents are underwriting the creation of custom made benches, a bulletin board, and trash cans. This is also the location of the annual (over 35 years now) neighborhood picnic. I am honored to be a part of it. The first bench Iíve built, shaped like a sailboat, seats eight parents --or about a dozen small, limitless imaginations.
