Imagination Park-Gathering Place in Downtown San Anselmo
A pocket park, a small green lawn, plenty of inviting benches, and a shimmering fountain with statues of Yoda and Harrison Ford grace the space next to the San Anselmo Town Hall. Opened on June 20, 2013, on land donated by George Lucas, this petite parcel is a focal point for the Downtown area and a magnet for kids of all ages. Directly across the street from Marin Coffee Roasters, the Park attracts shoppers, strollers, sun-seekers, coffee drinkers, dog walkers, Moms, Dads, Kids, residents, visitors, nannies with baby strollers, and a multitude of others. Beckoning passers-by for a look, a sit, conversation, contemplation, a meetup, a play date, a stop at an impromptu lemonade stand raising money for a school project, it is an attractive addition to the extremely walkable San Anselmo Downtown area.
