DOUGLAS STREET PARKLET
The mobile bicycle parklet on Douglas St is a space for people to sit, relax and linger.
As an amenity combining elements of seating, planting, bike parking, it offers an alternative experience of the city and the street. It is an open and public space, that invites residents and passers-by to interact socially, and to foster a sense of place, community and environment. This parklet is moveable and can be relocated to different areas in the city centre. It is hoped that it will enhance whatever public space it is placed in, bringing a pop of natural materials, green planting and vibrant artwork to what might otherwise be a concrete, overlooked or neglected space. A collaboration project: Transport and Mobility Forum, Douglas Street Business Association, Mad About Cork & Benchspace Cork with kind support from Cork City Council.
