Downtown pocket parks undergoing makeovers
Hightower Park and Pioneer Park are likely a mystery to most Oklahoma City residents, but that could change with improvements underway at the two largely unused gathering spots as well as downtown's Kerr Park.
A few dozen people gathered Thursday at Hightower Park, 208 Patience Latting Circle, to celebrate the addition of “Nurture,” a collection of colorful chairs and benches created by artist Beatriz Mayorca.
Using a mix of concrete, colorful metal and bands of mosaic tile, Mayorca took a grassy pocket park surrounded by the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, the downtown library and City Hall, and turned it into a place she hopes will be used throughout the year.
