Huntingdonshire District Council is seeking funding to install parklets, as a pilot project, in three of our market towns; Huntingdon, Ramsey and St. Ives. Parklets can be thought of as a very, very small park. They provide a place for people to relax, rest and even people watch. They add a touch of greenspace to the High Street.

An interesting example of what parklets can do can be seen in this case study.
