INSTALATION DATE: May 23-24, 2015

TIME: Beginning at 11:00a.m.

DETAILS: Vermont Tech is pleased to announce that on Saturday, May 23 and Sunday, May 24, Architectural Design students and community members will be installing a Pocket Park on Main Street in Montpelier, VT.

The students worked with property owners and the City to design a dynamic public space that will feature a shade pergola, seating, L.E.D. lighting, flowers, rain water catchment, mural and pubic bike parking. The Montpelier Pocket Park was created under the guidance of assistant professor and local architect Ward Joyce.

Much like Vermont Tech’s Rialto Bridge Parklet on State Street last summer, the local community will be playing a significant role in this project, helping to install and maintain it over the summer, as well as bringing it to life by enjoying it.

On Memorial Day weekend, the community is invited to help install the project both Saturday and Sunday after 11 A.M. The park’s grand opening will take place on Tuesday the 26th at 4:00 P.M. and all are invited.

If you have any questions, please contact Ward Joyce at 802-522-0150.
