Spring Street Parklets


Berry and Linné, as part of the DLANC Complete Streets Working Group, worked with a multi-disciplinary team to design and implement a pair of parklets on Spring Street in Downtown Los Angeles. As pilot projects, the design and construction of the Spring Street Parklets informed the eventual development of a city-wide parklet program.

The parklets re-purpose metered parking spaces to create mini-parks with seating, planting, and communal public spaces, functionally extending the sidewalk into the street to enrich the vibrant street life already present and foster future investment in the neighborhood.

The Spring Street Parklets were awarded a Planning Excellence Award for Grassroots Initiative by the APA Los Angeles in 2012.
