The Roxborough Pocket Park project evolved from the Roxborough 2020 initiative which engaged over 700 stakeholders on rethinking the direction of Ridge Avenue and the Roxborough neighborhood. Following Roxborough 2020, the Roxborough Development Corporation (RDC) selected Groundswell Design Group to build off of this interest and lead a visioning process which resulted in the Roxborough Pocket Park’s current concept.
Roxborough Pocket Park underscores how important our public green space is to our Roxborough community. Community volunteers participated in developing the design concepts and in helping to add resources to the project. And now RDC and the New Ridge Brewing Company are stepping in to maintain the site.
