The Town of Victoria Park encourages local businesses to extend their trading beyond the front door and spill onto the streets. Parklets and alfresclets are micro parks placed in parking bays that can be built and operated by local businesses to activate their street and encourage people to stop, sit and engage a little more with their businesses.
What is a parklet?
A parklet is a micro public open space created by placing a temporary structure in one or two parking bays. They are an extension of the footpath that provide seating, shade and amenity for the community’s enjoyment
What is an alfresclet?
A parklet can also be used as an ‘alfresclet’. An alfresclet is generally the same as a parklet but can be formalised as an alfresco area for the use of the adjacent business, while also being available to the general public. With appropriate liquor licensing and management, an alfresclet can potentially include the service of alcohol.
