People and Pocket Parks Play in Peoria


The Pocket Park program revitalizes neighborhoods by taking vacant land and planting trees, flowers, and shrubs. The layout of the parks are carefully planned with the neighborhood associations. The parks restore a sense of pride and communal worth through beautification.

Five Pocket Parks have been completed during past nine months. Councilman Clyde Gully and Economic Development staff supervised the development. Each of the neighborhood association members volunteered their time. A large group of about 30 individuals from Bradley University, (students, faculty, friends and family) under the guidance of Dr. Amir Al-Khafaji also volunteered their services to complete these parks. The community effort paid off for five different neighborhoods, making the City of Peoria an even nicer place to live, work and play.
