Expanding Public Spaces


In the spirit of embracing temporary, businesses and community leaders can join forces to extend seating (and activities) into the public realm  with “parklets” or “pallet parks.” These small, mobile platforms are custom designed to fit into a parking space (or two) and incorporate a variety of available materials (wood, metal, grass, etc.). Suitable for rural or urban landscapes, they have the potential to increase seating, engage visitors and spark interest.  Link to Inhabit’s slideshow of alternative designs and creative uses (bikes, pets, exhibits, yoga, gardens, small performances, etc.).

Identify an underused space and start the conversation in your community!
