Sabin Neighborhood Pocket Park

During the summer of 2011 AWB Oregon team members met with Sabin Community Association leaders to develop a unified design scheme for Portland's Sabin Triangle pocket park. This effort followed the community's response to an earlier AWB design charrette in May, and new designs were presented to the community on August 2 during a neighborhood gathering at the park.  Attended at various times by more than 40 residents, the presentation featured potluck food, music and these images below of the new park proposal.

The general design radiates from each end of the park triangle through arced patterns of permeable paving and bioswale planters.  These are shown in both a cleaner, open configuration and then again in a more full-featured set that includes community sculpture and additional planter seating.
