‘Parklet’ program brings green space to downtown Norfolk

NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – There’s a new program in Norfolk to bring parks, or “parklets,” into the downtown area.

One of the new “parklets” is on Granby Steet near Olney Road.

Right now, this is just a pilot program. Each “parklet” takes up one parking space. The idea is to bring amenities and green space into urban settings.

The Downtown Norfolk Council and the City of Norfolk launched the pilot program. You can check out the “parklets” around the downtown area until the end of September.
