Bienville Square Workshop
Many Mobilians consider historic Bienville Square to be the true heart of our city…the living room for all citizens to enjoy. It is an urban oasis in the midst of all the concrete and a respite from the hustle and bustle of city life. Or at least it could be. Surveys and feedback from park users tell us “the square is not very inviting; it’s dark and scary; there’s no reason to enter the park unless there’s a event going on.”
If you want to help make Bienville Square a welcoming public space for the 21st century, join the Downtown Parks Conservancy and City of Mobile for a workshop that’s open to anyone who cares about the future of Mobile. And everyone should care because great public spaces are a critical component to creating successful cities! The workshop will be led by designers from Carbo Landscape Architecture and Nimrod Long, two of the country’s leading urban park planners.
