Around the world[edit] Australia[edit] Balfour Street pocket park, Sydney Pocket parks, such as the Balfour Street Park can be created from small unused areas of public land.[2] Chile[edit] In Santiago Chile the first pocket park (plaza de bolsillo) was created beside of Palacio La Moneda at Morandé Street.[3] It was an initiative of Architecture Departament of the Ministry of Public Infrastructure and Regional Government of Santiago.[4] Mexico[edit] In Mexico City, there is a city program to create up to 150 pocket parks of 400m2 or less on vacant lots or even on land that had been part of a large intersection, such as Jardín Edith Sánchez Ramírez and the Condesa pocket park.[5] United Kingdom[edit] In England, a 1984 project to involve the local community in the creation and running of small, local parks has fostered several pocket parks in Northamptonshire,[6][7] and was later developed by the Countryside Commission into the Millennium Green and Doorstep Green projects. United States[edit] In Columbus, Ohio, Polaris Founder's Park was opened in 2011 and holds a 35-foot wind sculpture. In Los Angeles, where there are restrictions on how close registered sex offenders can live to parks, local officials planned three pocket parks to drive "undesirables" from a given area.[8] Pocket parks Little Pearl Park Crestone, Colorado  Founders Park Columbus, Ohio  Broad Street Park Texarkana, Arkansas  Cloud Gardens Toronto
