Duluth adds a “Parklet” Off a Downtown Sidewalk

The city of Duluth is trying an experiment with a “parklet” set up on the corner of Superior Street and West 1′st Street. A parklet is a public space used as extra sidewalk.

We all know that the summer season is way to short around here, so on a nice day or night, we want to be outside and enjoy it. Well If you are downtown where can you go? Hence the parklet, where the city of Duluth can see how people use the space in an urban environment.

I think it is a pretty cool concept in that it is right on the street and takes up 1 parking space. No word on If this is a permanent fixture or If more will be popping up around the area. So, what do you think of these? Should we have more of them around town?
