Civic Space Park brings feel of small neighborhood park to heart of downtown Phoenix

Yuri Artibise alerted us of this article that appeared in the Next American City blog on the Civic Space Park:

What did Civic Space Park bring to downtown Phoenix that wasn’t there before?
Civic Space Park brought the feel of a small neighborhood park to the heart of downtown Phoenix in a space that was formerly a collection of old buildings and parking lots. It gives emerging artists and performers a venue to showcase their talents and abilities.  It is a place that families can come to enjoy free events while keeping kids occupied with the splash pad and green grass to run and play in.  The newly renovated A.E. England Building houses the Fair Trade Cafe and offers space for meetings, banquets, classes, offices and art events. One of the goals of the park was to keep every event that takes place to remain free and open to the public.

And congratulations to the Civic Space Park Collaborative for being a Silver Medalist for the Rudy Bruner Award!
