What is a parklet?

A parklet is a reclaimed area of roadway that is repurposed into a shared public space—think of them as a hybrid between a public park and a parking space. The intent is to enhance the streetscape and provide amenities like seating, dining, bike parking, vegetation planting, and public art.

 

Why parklets?
Successful Downtowns and best practices recognize that bringing life to our public streets achieve many goals for the Downtown district including high-quality city living, safer streets, and effective economic competitiveness.
