The Orchard is a pocket park in the JOSANA Neighborhood. It was created by Project Scion, a local organization dedicated to transforming vacant lots in struggling neighborhoods into attractive community spaces. Created in 2012, The Orchard was their first project.
Neighborhood residents are encouraged to use the park for special events, recreation, BBQ's, or simply as a green space. The Orchard is maintained by the community for the benefit of all.
