In the most fundamental sense, a parklet is an alternative use for a parking spot.  This simple concept—designing an alternative use for a roughly 8’ x 22’ parking stall—has tremendous potential and limitless ways of executing.  It can occur in a parallel (or angled) parking stall and can be as permanent or temporary as you like.  Rochester’s first ever parklet was constructed and installed at the Riverside Building on 4th Street SE by members of the Design Advocacy Forum.  The entire installation time took less than 25 minutes and cost less than $500 to buy materials.
