Arup has designed a scheme of 'parklets’, comprising of new seating and park areas, as part of a pilot package of support for the hospitality sector in Liverpool. The new pop up parks will transform the look of the street by taking over existing parking bays in Liverpool and, if successful, could be rolled out to other streets across the city.
This pilot is part of the ongoing ‘Liverpool Without Walls’ project to re-imagine the city under social distancing, a joint project between Liverpool City Council, Liverpool BID Company and Liverpool Chamber of Commerce. The scheme is aimed at giving businesses in Liverpool the best chance of being ready to trade as soon as restrictions on hospitality businesses trading are lifted by the Government.
The parklet furniture installation will be taking place throughout early July on Liverpool’s Bold Street with the rollout of additional seating in the city expected throughout the summer.
