Parklet NOW OPEN
Updated: Jul 13, 2021
WHAT on earth is a parklet?
A parklet is a small recreational park that replaces parallel parking spaces. Parklets can provide seating, bike parking, a play space, and or outdoor exercise equipment.
WHY is this exciting?
St. Louis is home to a few private parklets, but this is the very first PUBLIC parklet in the City of St. Louis!
WHERE is this new parklet?
Outside of Narwhal's at the corner of Laclede and Vandeventer.
Even creating something small in size requires massive amounts of behind the scenes work. Let's give a big shout out to the people and organizations that helped make the first City of St. Louis public parklet a reality!

Custom Rehabs constructed the parklet.
