San Jose: The Alameda to get a pocket park
from The Mercury News
Earlier this spring, San Jose City Council approved the purchase of a 7,000-square-foot lot on The Alameda and Hanchett Avenue, aiming to turn the concrete area into a working park. The space is currently used as a small public parking lot, accommodating fewer than 20 cars. But the city hopes to make a park with an outsized impact. The project stems from the city’s walkable parks initiative, an offshoot of efforts by the National Recreation and Park Association, which advocates for a "great park within a 10-minute walk of every person, in every neighborhood, in every city across America."
