Did you know that Downtown Pittsburgh has a mobile parklet?
The yellow parklet was made by retrofitting a construction dumpster with bench seating and beautiful, seasonal plantings. Just like a regular dumpster, it can be relocated throughout Downtown, and is regularly deployed around the area to add public seating and greenery to streetscapes that are lacking pedestrian amenities.
The parklet can currently be found along Penn Avenue Extension near the Wyndham Grand and Gateway Center.
The project was created and managed by Envision Downtown, a joint project of the Mayor’s Office and the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership. Stop by and enjoy.
