Pine Bluff Downtown Development Inc. recently received a $4,000 “Giving Tree” grant from the Pine Bluff Area Community Foundation.

These funds will be used toward improvements to Barraque Plaza to make it an attractive area where food trucks can set up daily, according to a newsletter.

“The plaza provides outdoor picnic tables enjoyed by many, as well as additional seating in the adjacent Barraque Garden,” according to the newsletter.

The plaza and garden are located at Pine and Barraque streets.
