Huntingdonshire District Council is seeking funding to install parklets, as a pilot project, in three of our market towns; Huntingdon, Ramsey and St. Ives. Parklets can be thought of as a very, very small park. They provide a place for people to relax, rest and even people watch. They add a touch of greenspace to the High Street.
An interesting example of what parklets can do can be seen in this case study.
Why Parklets could benefit your High Street?
What people have said about Parklet projects in their towns...
"I’m sitting here right now having my coffee watching the world go by. It makes our city seem like a much more friendly place."
"It’s super, a cool place to sit and chat, eat your sandwich (albeit on a sunny day!)."
