Between 2 buildings

IMG_0612_edited-1.jpgDowntown Pocket Park sits quietly between 2 buildings in historic downtown Corsicana. I noticed this space from across the street, but didn’t realize what it was until I was closer.  It wasn’t just an empty space between 2 buildings, it was a little park!

Corsicana’s Art in Public Places committee selected this space to be its first project.  What a delightful space they created.  A bubbling fountain and ample seating spaces make it the perfect place to step into and sit peacefully for a few minutes.

I’m not sure what was originally in this space.  From the street there was a tile entrance that advertised “Virginia Dare For those who care”. Virginia Dare is a long-time producer of vanilla extracts and other flavorings, so it is hard to determine what kind of business was here.  Perhaps a soda fountain?

Downtown Pocket Park is available to rent for private functions and has public restrooms.
