Farset Pocket Forest
Description of chosen placeThe area has not been maintained for many years. It is a busy area being beside cross roads, near Queens Bridge and on the edge of the City Centre.
What do you imagine the space could be?Through using exciting planter beds a Willow forest/pocket park could be grown. The Willow would create a connection with historical Belfast as it is a native species and would have grown along the River Farset and River Lagan that flow near the site. The Willow would be used by the local arts community groups to weave sculptures with live branches, harvested to weave into baskets or built into coracles and currachs. (Lagan Currachs are situated across the road from the site).
