“It was a community event,” said Luke Rose of Abbeydale Street Trees, an organization working with local people to establish a green corridor in the area.

The parklet, a small area of ​​planters and seating, was funded by the City Council’s Economic Recovery Fund.

Luke said: “The plan is that he will be there for three years. It was built by Strip the Willow, a local carpentry company. They will maintain it.

He explained that the parklet could be left in place longer if it becomes popular or if it can be moved.

“It’s really transformative. If you look at what was there before, it was only used for parking,” Luke said. “Seeing the transformation at Saturday’s event was really awesome.”
