The Arts Council of Princeton’s Parklet
has returned to Downtown Princeton!

The Princeton Parklet has returned to its debut location on Witherspoon Street in front of small world coffee.

Using the 2017 structure designed and built by local architect Joseph Weiss (learn about the Energy Parklet here) the 2018 Parklet will not only be welcoming off-street seating for neighbors to gather, but will also feature a green roof to serve as an educational venue to teach about the importance of water, soil and plants in our urban environment. Our community is invited to escape into this street garden to enjoy a beverage, chat with neighbors, and relax in what is otherwise a busy traffic area.

The public is invited to the Opening Celebration on Saturday, June 9 at 1pm on Witherspoon Street in front of Small World Coffee.

“After the great experience we had last year with the jazams Energy Parklet and all of the energy features we built, this year’s Parklet will be more about relaxing with friends, unplugging for a brief time, and just enjoying the design of the structure”, says ACP Artistic Director Maria Evans. “Jessica Durrie, owner of small world, is such a great host for the Parklet and makes sure it is clean and well kept for the public. I’m certain this will be another great year for this beloved public art project”.
