Parklets increase outdoor seating options at restaurants and bars
"A parklet is a pedestrian space created by building a temporary sidewalk extension within an on-street parking space with amenities such as seating, art and landscaping. Parklets are used to activate pedestrian street activity, and they support economic development by encouraging foot traffic at local businesses." Also worth knowing... these parklets are spaces open for use by the public, not just adjacent business patrons. You might have noticed them in use in Fort Worth’s Near Southside for several months now.
