This summer, the Sudden Park popped up at the former Sahr’s Sudden Service station to activate the Horace Mann Neighborhood with a vibrant public space. Over four months the park has hosted eight public events including a neighborhood block party and a concert. That’s almost 1,000 visitors during public events only, not including everyday park use.
Two of these events were co-hosted alongside property owners, Kilbourne Group, with the goal of gaining critical insights to inform the future of the site. Though the timeline and design are still yet to be determined, we are incredibly grateful for all of the community input that has been given so far, and value these thoughts in the design process.
