Parklet Program creates places for people

To support business growth and activation within the City of Onkaparinga, council has developed two parklets for use across the city.

Consisting of benches, tables, chairs, planter boxes and bike racks, parklets are typically positioned over one to two parking spaces, transforming them from ‘places for cars’ to ‘places for people’.

Becks Bakehouse in Port Noarlunga was the first business to host one of council’s parklets under the pilot program, used to encourage pedestrian activity and test additional outdoor dining with their customers. Since hosting the parklet, Becks Bakehouse has expanded their business footprint, now with an additional 52 seats in their outdoor dining area, encouraging greater activation and space for people to socialise.

Now at The Coffee Factory in Port Noarlunga, the parklet is continuing to bring vibrancy and vitality to the mainstreet area.
