GLRPPR Sector Resource: Reclaiming the Right of Way: A Toolkit for Creating and Implementing Parklets

Title:
Reclaiming the Right of Way: A Toolkit for Creating and Implementing Parklets

Abstract:
The purpose of the Parklet Toolkit is to provide city staff and community members with practical guidance to support the development of small-scale parks, called parklets. Parklet programs and projects are spreading quickly across the nation, from San Francisco to New York and other cities profiled in the toolkit. This decision support toolkit is designed specifically to facilitate the development of parklet projects in the city of Los Angeles and encourage a parklet program that creates an institutionalized pathway for their installation. Despite the focus on Los Angeles, the program case studies, project guidelines, and other best practices presented in this toolkit are easily transferable to other communities across the nation.
