Project Inspo


We invite 614 Beautiful participants to dream big when thinking about proposals. Below are a few examples of creative placemaking efforts that include elements of pocket parks, landscape enhancements, streetscape enhancements, and public art. The aim of the game is to activate a place, get people together, and celebrate the spirit of Columbus. Click each image to learn about what others are doing.

While we recognize the importance of gardens and urban agriculture in our communities, it is not the intention of the 614 BEAUTIFUL program to have proposals that are exclusively community gardens.
