 Project updates

This project will improve a 1.36-acre site north of the intersection of Benfield Road and DeArmon/Johnston Oehler Road to create a pocket park for use by the surrounding community. The site is situated at the dead end of Docia Crossing Road and is positioned to serve as a gateway to the Prosperity Village area. The public space was identified in the Prosperity Hucks Area Plan​ as a park/open space and a greenway connector into the South Core Activity Center.

The pocket park will provide the community a common space to use for passive recreation, education and community events. The City of Charlotte's initiative to construct 250 place making​ projects across the City in 2019 prompted the launch of this project.

Engineering & Property Management; Planning, Design & Development Placemaking Program; Charlotte Water and Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services are all contributing financially to implement the project and its educational components.

  • ​To provide a space for passive recreation, education and community events

  • April 2, 2019 at Crossway Community Church

  • October 20, 2018 at the Prosperity Village Parklet

  • September 13, 2018 during the Prosperity Village Pop-Up Market at Mallard Creek Recreation Center
