Overview

No votes yet

Open Road has greenhouses, roses, a pond and a solar panel, murals on the adjoining schoolyard, and tons of skateboarders. The garden extends for the full width of the block to East 12th Street. Originally a bus depot, the park has a deep commitment to using composting for planting in its soil beds and has partnered with city departments such as Sanitation as well as Parks, as well as with private groups such as the Trust for Public Land. Neighborhood skateboarders fill the park and much of the programming takes this into account. A new mosaic is being put on the concrete curb underneath the fence.
