Stanwood parklet example

An example of a type of “parklet” where street-side parking is transformed into spaces with seating for restaurants or for retail.

The Stanwood City Council met online Thursday to approve a plan for small "parklets" in parking spaces to test ways to revitalize business districts.

The council unanimously approved the parklet pilot program as a test to see if a larger vision is viable to revitalize downtown with more pedestrian activities and events.
