Survey Asks: How Do You Feel About Parklets on South and Centre Streets?
How do you feel about parklets, or mini-parks, being in Jamaica Plain this summer? That's the topic for a JP Centre/South Main Streets survey. Installing parklets is a city initiative throughout Main Streets districts for this summer. "A Parklet repurposes part of the street, typically one or two parking spaces, into a public space in which people can gather and socialize. In cities across the country, Parklets play an important role in neighborhood placemaking, encouraging community interactions and a vibrant street life," says a Boston.gov document about the initiative.
