The Ark – A Community Parklet in Lewisham

The Ark is a community parklet located in Hither Green, Lewisham. Funded by Spin and built by Yes Make, the parklet aims to provide additional outdoor space for people using local shops, cafés and businesses, helping to encourage people to the high street and providing more space for social distancing. It also aims to allow the local community to have a sense of place. As a result, The Ark is a great example of a Parklet designed with the community in mind, and the HSE “Creating Parklets for Community and Business Resilience” guidance played an instrumental role in the early development stages. Read the full document for step-by-step support on creating your own parklet, including the design elements to think about in order to build a truly inclusive and accessible space for all to enjoy.
