Micro-Spaces: Seattle’s Parklets and Streateries

Experience some of Seattle’s newest public spaces: its parklets and streateries! These micro-spaces have added community-driven public space to business districts throughout Seattle. As privately-funded and privately-maintained structures, parklets and streateries have been a cost-effective way to activate streets and promote economic vitality. During this tour, we’ll walk to four of the projects that have been built around downtown Seattle and its surrounding neighborhoods. We’ll hear from City staff, parklet designers, and hosting businesses about the benefits and challenges of the program, as well as the City’s strategies for improving the program in years to come.
