Parklet

 ***The parklet was damaged and temporarily removed. Please contact the staff planner below for further information. ***

Downtown Pleasanton now has a parklet located on West Angela Street at the corner by Main Street (across the street from the bicycle corral).  The parklet is a temporary public space that will last through the Summer of 2018 at which time the City Council will evaluate the desirability as an amenity to the downtown.  Parklets have been successfully and safely installed in communities throughout the Bay Area including Lafayette and Berkeley.

 

In Pleasanton, the parklet’s primary purpose is to benefit the public by providing a space for eating, relaxing, and connecting with friends and family.  It will also support local businesses by enhancing the pedestrian environment, encouraging traffic calming, and improving accessibility to businesses.  The City is also using the parklet to promote a message of sustainability to our residents and businesses.  Some of the parklet furnishings are made of 91% recycled content, which was paid for with Measure D funds, and other furnishings were created by repurposing a tree that was already cut down in the City.
