Parklets have grown in popularity across various major European cities, with residents being able to switch off from the city buzz and enjoy a few minutes of relaxation, right in the city center. As the first city in Poland, Łódź presents its first city oasis at ul. Struga 2.
The first parklet in Łódź has been made available to residents at ul. Struga 2 on Tuesday (06.09.2016). The Parklet took one parking space and consists of a wooden platform, benches and plants.
– It is a space where we can stop for a moment, relax, look at the frontages of houses and establish social contacts – says Bartłomej Olczak from the Fenomen Foundation, which is the initiator of the Parklet.
The Parklet will remain at ul. Struga until the end of October. In spring it will be moved to another location.
