Get your business outside while honoring social distancing guidelines.

Like all current events, the urban fabric of our Cities and Towns are rapidly changing...

Many Cities around Colorado and the US have made plans to temporarily close streets to give restaurants and other businesses more space to serve their customers. This supports the guidelines that allow restaurants to remain open, while encouraging more outdoor dining to help ensure social distancing.
 
Some cities have allowed eateries to expand onto sidewalks and into alleyways, while others have created new pedestrian malls.  Everyone is being forced to re-evaluate how to be successful in the face of strict regulations and required distancing. Local, smaller businesses are feeling the greatest pinch.
 
We at Colorado Parklets are gathering this need and transforming it into possibility. As a recent start-up, we’ve seen the potential of outdoor public spaces that can transcend the status quo and give small businesses an advantage to get back on solid ground. By expanding a businesses footprint into the street or public Right of Way, they are able to quickly pivot and provide more area to serve customers in a safe environment.

What is a Parklet?

Parklets are public seating platforms that convert curbside parking into usable space for dining, retail, office, art installations or community use. Also known as street seats or curbside seating, parklets are the product of a partnership between the city and local businesses, to open their doors for business while honoring social distancing guidelines.

Patented Modular System

What makes Colorado Parklets so unique is its modular construction.  Our parklets have a distinct design that incorporates a patented, completely modular assembly.  Essentially Legos for adults.

100% designed and manufactured in Durango, CO,  your parklet can be installed within a matter of hours, with zero construction and zero down time.  Additional options include winter enclosures, seating, planters, barrier options, and bike racks to name a few.

Safety First

With new regulations allowing “bump out” space for restaurants to serve people on the street you must consider safety.  We are the only safe option on the market. 

Colorado Parklets are raw steel, when joined together the integrity of the system is strengthened.  There is no question of safety and durability when it comes to a Colorado Parklet.

CO Dept of Transportation Grant

Your Colorado Parklets could be covered by a grant from the Colorado Department of Transportation.  The state is stepping in with a new $4.1 million grant program to encourage more creative uses for public streets as businesses revive after the pandemic shutdown.

The Revitalizing Main Streets program was developed to support infrastructure projects that provide open spaces for mobility, community activities and economic development in the wake of the COVID-19 emergency. These quick-win activities will improve safety and create new community spaces to encourage healthy activity and mobility in Colorado’s towns and cities.

CDOT’s streetscape challenge will offer small-scale grants that support creative uses of public infrastructure in both cities and small towns across the state.
