Downtown 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.
