Isn't it just tiny and adorable! The Uptown Parklet had it's grand opening this afternoon.
The Parklet is on Queen Anne Avenue outside the SIFF Cinema building, and was designed to showcase Uptown's "unique arts and culture identity". The parklet design includes colorful seats, a mini library, and bike parking.
This is the sixth parklet in Seattle. Three parklets were designed and permitted in 2013 as part of the first phase of the Pilot Parklet Program, and SDOT selected 12 additional locations for construction in 2014. City staff will evaluate the success of the pilot parklets and make a formal recommendation about a permanent parklet program,
