San Francisco is converting Pavement to Parks

One of the thrills of living in an urban center is watching innovative trends emerge. And San Francisco is a hot bed of funky change.

Over the last couple of years we've begun seeing Parklets pop-up around the City.

What's a Parklet?

Imagine eminant domain over a portion of a street (often parallel street parking spots in front of a restaurant or cafe), converting asphalt into a public place for citizens to relax and enjoy the atmosphere of the city around them. Obviously the parklets are also a boon for the restaurants and cafes immediately adjacent.

San Francisco's "Pavement to Parks" program is facilitating their installation. Viva la parklet.
