Tip 6 – transform your street

Make the most of your street with a pop-up park or parklet. 

These are places where people can stop and rest and where children can play. They're also a good way for people without gardens to spend time outside and connect with their neighbours.

Why not create a parklet with friends to make walking more of an event?

Check out our Parklets Toolkit, along with some other inspiring reads about how we can put community at the heart of our streets.
