Plans for a new pocket park in a vacant space in downtown Paducah are nearly complete. Planner Sheryl Chino told the Paducah Board of Commissioners in a meeting Tuesday night that bidding is expected to start late fall.
Features include a sign, pergolas, lighting, charging stations, landscaping, benches and a sculpture from students at the Paducah School of Art and Design.
The cost is estimated around $126,000 dollars. Sponsorships and partnerships are being coordinated.
According to a release, Chino said Paducah Bank has verbally committed to sponsoring the project. The Yeiser Art Center and MAKE Paducah are coordinating a community art project for the park. Four Rivers Behavioral Health and various garden clubs have also expressed interest in sponsoring elements of the park.
