Adelaide: Banks St Parklets

After much acclaim in San Fran and other cities, it is great to see parklets in Australian cities.   I found 2 sets (3-5 spaces in a row) on Banks St with a range of seating fronting onto to cafes. The Bank Street Demonstration Project, led by DPTI, was created in 2013 and designed with TCL.

Every time I see a parklet, I think WHY Brisbane do you not have these already?!!?

    Because we have a narrow-minded council who are fearful of offending car drivers.

    Also, lovely photos and a great initiative.

    And the latest news is of course that the parklets in Bank Street are now being removed almost as quickly as they arrived… http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/news/south-australia/sa-police-arrest-six-people-following-disturbance-on-bank-st/news-story/0119208baa1a191008886b9619484da2
