Parklets provide an economical solution to the desire and need for wider sidewalks and are intended to provide space for the general public to sit and enjoy the space adjacent to existing narrow sidewalks. Parklets are intended as sidewalk/street furniture for public use, providing aesthetic elements to the overall streetscape, with care by adjacent businesses and residents.
