The First on street Parklet project for London
We are pleased to announce that QTD Ltd were commissioned by Cyclehoop to build the first on street Parklet which is now positioned in the Borough of Hackney in London.
The idea of a ‘Parklet’ is a relatively new one in the UK. The first formal public parklets in the world were conceived and installed in San Fransico in 2010. Since then thirty eight parklets have been installed across San Fransisco and are being rolled out in cities around the world.
The ‘Parklets’ are bespoke to fit the sorrounding areas which include cycle parking, planters, seating and play areas. The aim being to create greener, cleaner, quieter streets and therefore a healthier and more active city.
Parklets create little pockets of new public space for people to meet, park their bikes and making the streets greener.
