Princeton Parklet Opening Celebration

- Free and Open to the Public!


The Arts Council of Princeton announces the installation of its Princeton Parklet, a sidewalk extension that provides outdoor seating and space for people to enjoy, returning to its location outside Small World Coffee on Witherspoon Street this week.

In 2015, the first parklet was installed in front of Small World Coffee on Witherspoon Street and in 2017, an interactive parklet, “Energy Playground” came to life in front of
jaZams. The spring of 2018 saw the parklet return to Small World, where visitors enjoyed quality outdoor time with friends and neighbors. An Opening Celebration will
be held on Thursday, May 30 at 5pm, free and open to the public.

The 2019 Parklet will once again be located at 14 Witherspoon Street, using the structure designed and built by architect Joseph Hobart Weiss in 2017. This year, the Parklet will feature furniture designed by Chris Maher, flowering plants, free WIFI provided by Andrena, an interactive chalkboard supplied by Princeton Entrepreneurship Council, and additional art-based activities.

The Parklet was made possible the Arts Council of Princeton, Municipality of Princeton, Andrena, Andlinger Center, Davidge Design Studio, The Historical Society of Princeton, MacLean Agency, Palmer Square, PNC Bank, Princeton Entrepreneurship Council, The Watershed Institute, Whole Earth Center, and Chris Maher Design.
