Want to make the most of your street? A pop-up park or a parklet can be used as a place to stop and rest, have a chat with neighbours and a play area for children.

It’s also a great way to spruce up an area and add a bit of greenery. Why not create a parklet with friends to make walking more of an event?

Remember that you’ll need permission from the landowner; read John and Diana’s story for some practical advice on creating a parklet or mini-park.
