The 2017 UW exploration seminar brought seven undergraduate students to Eliseo Collazos. David, Brian and Coco facilitated participatory workshops with the community and students, where the project goal was set: Create increased access to safe play-space for the younger children of the settlement. 

In just 6 weeks, a triangular plot of land was transformed into a small, protected play space with seating, planters and slides and a musical wall for the children to play on. The pocket park seemingly materialized overnight, highlighting the power of teamwork, design expertise, and reliable neighborhood craftsman.
