The 8 month parklet trial aims to support businesses, to reinvigorate and activate Albury CBD, following the challenges experienced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Research indicates that parklets are a catalyst for enhanced vitality and activity in commercial districts.
The region has been hit hard by the impact of the pandemic, and projects such as this provide social benefits in re-uniting the community, as well as promoting and encouraging healthy lifestyles.
The Albury parklet trial is located at 465 Dean Street, out the front of Hapi and Zen X restaurants. The parklet is accessible for people of all abilities and will be activated through a program of events.
Proudly supported through the NSW Government's Streets as Shared Spaces program, the parklet trail was opened on 9 July and we are now taking feedback on the concept.
