Veedersburg Pocket Park
During the 2015-2016 school year, Mr. Brian Turner was approached by Crystal Brewer and the Veedersburg Revitalization Association about wanting Fountain Central High School's Civil Engineering and Architecture class to help design the Veedersburg Pocket Park project. The Veedersburg Pocket Park will transform two abandoned buildings into a downtown pocket park designed by local high school engineering students. The park's location will be 110-112 East 2nd Street.
Lt. Governor Eric Holcomb announced the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA) awarded a $10,000 grant to the town of Veedersburg. This park will include benches, picnic tables, landscaping, a bulletin board, a decorative pergola, complete with street type lighting to enhance safety and extend the usable time of space.
Mr. Tuner's class conducted site surveys and input the data into their design software. The student's were grouped into 3 teams, each creating their own design for the park. A winning design was chosen from the team comprised of Cameron Logan, Hugo Dominguez, and Jacob Bell. Once the design was approved, work then commenced on tearing down the abandoned buildings where the new Pocket Park will be located.
The park is expected to be completed during the summer of 2017.
