Do Parklets Work?

We are pleased to announce the release of our study of the impact of the trial parklet on Divisadero Street between Hayes and Grove Streets, in front of Cafe Mojo.

Our
 research
 reveals
 that
 the
 trial
 parklet
 has
 already
 increased
 pedestrian
 activity
 in
 the
 study
 area,
 the
 satisfaction
 of
 pedestrians
 in
 the
 area
 and
 people’s
 sense
 of
 community
 character.

  • The
 greatest
 increase
 in
 activity
 was
 seen
 on
 weekday
 evenings
 when
 pedestrian
 traffic
 rose
 37%
 from
 an
 average
 of
 363
 to
 497
 people
 per
 hour.
 The
 average
 number
 of
 pedestrians 
during 
all
 observation
 periods
 increased
 13%.
  • The
 average
 number
 of
 people
 sitting
 or
 standing
 increased
 30%
 from
 10
 to
 13
 at
 a
 time,
 and
 the
 average
 number
 of
 weekday
 visitors
 in
 particular
 almost
 doubled
 from
 8
 to
 14
 people
 at a time.
  • The
 percent
 of
 people
 surveyed
 who
 thought
 the
 area
 has
 a
 strong
 sense
 of
 community
 character
 increased
 from
 80%
 to
 90%
  • Despite
 the
 increase
 in
 potential
 customers
 walking
 by
 all
 stores,
 nearby
 businesses
 are
 evenly
 split
 between
 whether
 they 
agree 
the 
parklet 
should 
be 
made 
permanent 
or 
not.
