We have three chances to win £20 in shopping vouchers and all we ask is that you snap a pic of your idea for your own parklet to re-prioritise space for people over cars!

So let us see your creative side Chorlton. What would be on your parklet of possibilities? Take one or two car parking bays and re-imagine what they could be used for.

A mini gym? An outdoor dog grooming station? A giant board game? The possibilities are endless and the only limit is your imagination.

What Is A Parklet?

A parklet is a reclaimed and repurposed parking space. They are popular all over Europe and originate from San Francisco, where there was a people powered movement to create more spaces to rest, relax and re-wild public spaces and repurpose car parking spaces for more people to use. Sometimes the spaces include things like gym equipment, bike racks, play areas and even chess boards.
