Frankford Pause Park

COMMUNITY DESIGN COLLABORATIVE  |  Philadelphia

Frankford Pause Park will be a new public open space at the intersection of Frankford Avenue and Paul Street just below the elevated Arrot Transportation Center. Our work is based on a concept design from a Community Design Collaborative service grant. Locus Partners remains true to the conceptual design intentions of a vibrant and playful park while resolving technical details and responding to site conditions discovery. The park is composed of a stage, planters set in seating decks, sound-responsive lighting, and a punchy colorful (pink!) system of pathways, paint, and canopies. Frankford Pause Park provides a much needed unique event and gathering space for the neighborhood. Park construction is expected soon.
