The Town of Burlington has plans in the works to open its first Pocket Park with a Beer Garden event.
The project, a small park in the Town Center that will be located next to Sweet Ginger at the corner of Cambridge Street and Moran Avenue, is meant to be a place where people can gather and has the goal of creating more interest in the businesses located in that part of town. It is the work of Economic Development Director Melisa Tintocalis who said it is an early step in generating renewed interest in the Town Center.
“One main missions of the office is to enliven the areas around the small businesses,” she told the board. “We have a lot of opportunities to grow this area over time. What we’re trying to do is activate it by working with the property owner and business owners to revitalize underused areas.”
To kick things off she said she wanted to have a one-day beer garden event to celebrate the opening of the Pocket Park. This would be done with Boston-based Crafted, a craft beer event company, to give residents a chance to check out the new park and give businesses in the area a chance to offer special deals to get people more familiar with their wares.
