Last year's project re-purposed the elements from the Parklet of the year before, using them as part of a much larger open design that turned an empty lot into a dynamic public open space in downtown. The Pocket Park had a number of interesting features, such as a gigantic chess board, solar powered bollards, a green wall, rain water catchment for watering the plants, and a pop-up food caterer on site. The project won a Landscape Design Award from the Vermont Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects.
