BROOKFIELD — Looking for a place to take a break from a busy day or to meet up with friends? Check out the town’s new pocket park, which was constructed as part of the third of six phases of a $12.4 million streetscape development project.

The third phase of the yearslong project, which has just been completed at a cost of $1.6 million, is the smallest of the six phases, Brookfield community development specialist Greg Dembowski said.

“We’ve created a new place for people to congregate and for walkers to sit,”  Dembowski said of the pocket park at 756 Federal Road in front of the Dunkin’ Donuts Plaza.
