The town of Fremont is putting together a pocket park for the community to enjoy.

Using a property acquired by the town a few years ago at the corner of Pleasant and Toledo streets, the park will have both a shaded area and sunny area for people to spend time in.

Clerk-Treasurer Kathy Parsons said in an email the rear of the property will have a pergola with lighting, benches and landscaping with flagstone walkways, a grassy area with emerald arborvitate in the center and a purple fountain beech tree on the west side of the property.

The front of the property will have a water feature, a bubbling boulder, white benches, lighting, planters and flagstone walkways.

The town acquired the property the park will be on a few years ago and removed the building that was in disrepair.

Parsons said approximately 10 years ago, the town did a downtown revitalization over a two-block area. It’s believed the pocket park will be a great addition to what has already been implemented throughout town.

“We are very excited about the addition of the Pocket Park in the downtown area for the community to enjoy,” Parsons said.

In addition to the pocket park, Fremont also has the town park on Albion Street, Vistula Park and the school playground through the school system and a dog park on Broad Street.
