Parklets in Downtown Millburn

From Downtown Millburn:

Starting this coming Friday, August 4th, two out of the three planned parking spaces on Millburn Avenue will be converted in to Parklets. This is part of a pilot project that was planned to showcase various ways the flexible parking can be used to attract shoppers and diners to our town.

One of the Parklets will be set up in front of Dunkin Donuts. Emerald Garden is designing the space and a lending library is being installed to encourage all to come relax and enjoy our town. Another Parklet will be located in front of Green Nectar Juicery. We will be providing various novelties within these spaces for the community to enjoy during the coming weeks.

Our third and final Parklet will launch on August 11th designed by Millburn Florist and will be located in front of Design Hub.

All will be able to enjoy the Parklets well into the fall, weather permitting.


More About Parklets

Parklets are extensions of the sidewalk from the curb into the street: they are installations of public seating, art, plants and other elements, typically located in one or more parking spots and protected from traffic. They are places to gather, eat and drink, celebrate and create, work, play, and build community. With numerous placemaking benefits, these public spaces can make downtowns a more desirable place to live and work, and a more attractive destination. Parklets will not only increase public space, but will support walking and biking opportunities and foster creative community interactions. Encouraging people to socialize and linger in downtown locations, parklets can also provide a customer boost to nearby businesses.
