Cayton Corner Park

A safe, verdant open space for neighborhood children to play in and for families and other neighbors to gather and socialize.


The area around the vacant lot at 1831 East Madison Street has been changing rapidly, with green spaces disappearing to make way for apartment complexes and multi-family dwellings. This project aims to transform the lot into a neighborhood pocket park that includes a sensory garden, play elements, and resting spots. Cayton Corner Park will provide an urban oasis and a neighborhood gathering space.

The project will be completed in phases, starting with improvements to the sidewalk along 19th Avenue, which has posed challenges to parents with baby strollers, deaf and blind pedestrians, and seniors who use walkers and wheelchairs. Adjacent to the site are 96 units of affordable and transitional housing, and 17 nonprofit organizations are located within a two-block radius. These organizations, especially programs for neighborhood children, are in desperate need of outdoor space and opportunities to connect with the community.
