What is a parklet? It is a temporary extension of the sidewalk using one parking space to add seating and amenities for citizens.
The parklet in this video was assembled in Washington, MO for our annual conference and then awarded to Main Street Chillicothe during the Evening of Excellence and 10-Year Celebration dinner. 

This presentation was given by Gayla Roten, State Director for Missouri Main Street, to the AARP Creating Livable Communities for All Ages.
