San Francisco turns parking spaces into relaxed spaces

These “parklets” offer a little oasis in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city. One can argue they take away what’s already scarce parking real-estate in crowded urban areas but they also prove that it doesn’t take a lot of money or planning to come up with ingenious solutions to improve our cities. In addition to San Francisco, they’ve also sprout up in Vancouver, Philadelphia and Los Angeles.
