Broadening Pedestrian Areas with the Help of Parklets
Eight car parking spaces were turned into liveable parklets for residents in Munich to sit down and relax. The parklets remained from July to September 2019 and provided plants, furniture, bicycle parking, a bookcase, a little blackboard and in one case even a small sandpit for children. Previous to the implementation, neighbours were involved and their concerns and contributions were considered in the planning. “Godparenthoods” for the plants (including watering and taking care of the plants) created even further citizen involvement.
