WEST PALM BEACH – Parklets are coming to West Palm Beach! They create social spaces by transforming parking stalls into lively outdoor places where people can eat, read, sit, play and relax. Built along the sidewalk, parklets will enhance the public realm in unique and creative ways – expanding the limited sidewalk space throughout downtown and on Northwood Road.

Only one parklet will be permitted per block face and only on city streets. Applications for the Qualification Phase are available now and must be submitted to the Planning Division by February 28, 2017.
