Community-Led Placemaking Program


Places aren’t static—they evolve, grow, and change over time to reflect the needs of community. The Town of Amherst, in collaboration with the Amherst and Area Chamber of Commerce, took that to the next level with their Community-Led Placemaking project, implementing a portable park that could pop up anywhere in town. While the project opened in downtown Amherst with plants, greenery, picnic tables, and lights—every element of the park is mobile and can be moved around town to accommodate public events and community demand.
