What is a Pocket Park?
A Pocket Park (sometimes referred to as ‘Parklets’ or ‘Mini Park’) is a European concept aimed at bringing park-like features to urban areas such as towns and cities. These are usually small and bespoke and designed to fit in unexpected areas such as car parking spaces. A Pocket Park is effectively a scaled down version of a park, incorporating a number of key features such as cycle parking, seating, planters, trees and flowers. Although Pocket Parks are usually no larger than a few car parking spaces, they can however be designed to meet any bespoke shape or size and can accommodate a wide range of park or garden features. Pocket Parks are becoming increasingly popular in higher density areas where the lack of greenery and outdoor seating areas are virtually none existent.
