Scene: Church Street’s New “Parklets”

Some of Church Street's parking spaces are becoming pedestrian oases.

WHERE: Along Church Street

WHEN: Thursday, August 1

WHAT: The Church-Wellesley Village business improvement area, the 519 Community Centre, and the City are all helping fund the conversion of some of Church Street’s parking spaces into small “parklets”—little areas where pedestrians can sit down and take breaks. The first batch of the structures is still under construction, but the plan, according to the Star, is to install eight of them by mid-August and then remove them all around the end of October.
