Williamsville’s Pocket Park originated from the Picture Main Street plan, which called for “a continuous Village commons, where people can meet and escape the sound volumes of Main Street.”
Village Volunteer Park eliminated an unnecessary curb cut and a driveway that was dangerous to pedestrians entering and exiting the Williamsville Library, particularly children.
The park was constructed by utilizing a balance of Department of Public Works and volunteers’ labor to break out the asphalt and put in new plantings and amenities.
It is still a work in progress and it is continuously upgraded as time and funding become available.
