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.
