Greater Manchester’s first Bee Network ‘parklet’ and ‘pocket park’ has launched on Bridgefield Street in Stockport. Dozens of parklets and pocket parks could be delivered throughout Greater Manchester as part of the Bee Network.
A parklet is a mini-park - usually the size of one or two car parking bays - that is typically installed on-street featuring seating, greenery and cycle parking. A pocket park is a small park-like space that enhances a variety of street types and can incorporate seating, planting, play and street gym equipment.
The Greater Manchester Combined Authority and Transport for Greater Manchester are looking to create new ‘Parklets’ on the Bee Network and have set up an online consultation. They would like you to suggest possible locations they could be installed in. They will be reviewed and added to the map on a weekly basis, and the locations will be assessed by the relevant district teams every few months.
