Parklets or pop-up parks

Parklets was a new word to me, but a great concept.

Parks are more important at weekends and roads to move traffic are less important. Therefore cities like Rio and San Paulo close specific streets to traffic and create parklets or “pop-up” parks for the weekend. You find the locals taking a walk and using the streets like they would a park.

This is a great idea other cities could look at.
