Park Portrait: Arbutus Court
Arbutus Court Park in Traverse City, just off of Boon St., is a small neighborhood pocket park. According to a resident who walked by, it is the ‘big kids’ park in the neighborhood. The smaller kids use the nearby Boon Street Park. Personally, I appreciate small parks like Arbutus Court; they add significantly to a neighborhood and are a neutral, public space for people to meet and gather, or just sit alone.
It be interesting to see if the neighborhood would like to work on a small beautification project here. At the least, the city could find some funds to expand the basketball court to something more than a 3-second lane. Although, it is a good place to practice free throws. Additional parks images.
