From Southeast by Southeast’s Melissa Fogg: Southeast by Southeast Burmese and Bhutanese after school students visited the Cambodian Association’s after school program to talk about their dreams for outdoor space at Mifflin Square! Kids were particularly excited about swimming pools, full-size soccer courts, and a hill with a tower and tunnel…but decided that they would be happy with improved seating, sporting facilities, barbecue areas, and flower gardens. Some of the kids felt “too cool” for the event on their way over, but were complete converts by 5:00. They are excited for changes to the park to begin, and now feel a real sense of ownership and engagement with the design process!
