Six simple steps to turn a one-day parking space reinvention into a parklet.
1 Connect with a supportive nearby business or other organizations to plan a parklet installation on Park(ing) Day, the third Friday of September.
2 Demonstrate the potential that an accessible and interactive parklet holds. Take photos, collect testimonials, and use social media to broadcast them.
3 Use the momentum of your parklet’s success to coordinate a meeting between city staff and the supportive business to discuss a temporary pilot installation.
4 Employ relentless optimism and homemade cookies until the city agrees to the idea.
5 Fund the project through businesses, grants, crowdfunding, etc.
6 Have a party in your new parklet!
