POP The Pop-Up Park transformed and activated an eyesore in the urban core of Wichita into a thriving public space where the community can interact and connect in 2015. This project filled in a former “hole” and in its place built a temporary park with raised planters that double as seating, artwork by local artists, a variety of colorful seating options, festoon lighting and a concrete ping-pong table which is a local favorite. Pop-Up Park Downtown Wichita received a grant from the Knight Foundation Fund at the Wichita Community Foundation to construct the Pop-Up Park and positively enhance Wichita's urban core. 5 1 D O W N T O W N
