The five temporary parklets were installed on 22 February 2023 and are strategically placed off Bondi Road and Campbell Parade to break up the walk from Bondi Junction to Bondi and beyond. They are free spaces to sit, relax and socialise along what has become a popular walking route.
During the trial we're collecting feedback to determine whether the parklet trial should be extended, or alternatively, if the space should be considered and designed as a permanent landscaped space with seating.
This project is funded by the NSW Government's Streets as Shared Spaces Program.
What is a parklet?
A parklet is an extension of the footpath which takes up one parking space. Parklets act as mini parks, improving amenity of the street and bringing other great benefits for the community. The businesses closest to each parklet were consulted to ensure their operations wouldn't be impacted.
