17 | Bike Corral + Parklet in South End / by keihly moore

Put a bike corral, parklet, planter, and street tree on it!

By Keihly Moore

Before: Just another parking space in front of Queen City Bicycles in South End on E. Park Ave. 

After: Put a parklet and bike corral on it! 

There's always a need for more public seating and bike racks in South End, especially now that food trucks and gallery openings are no longer a well-kept hot-spot secret, drawing hundreds of folks. Why circle the block multiple times looking for parking when you can roll up on two wheels right next to your destination? Why not extend the sidewalk into more of a patio/front porch style social experience?
