BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KERO) – The Hub of Bakersfield has announced a new location for locals to enjoy an outdoor visit. It’s called a parklet.
The first Bakersfield Parklet is in front of the Padre Hotel on 18th Street, west of H Street.
The Hub of Bakersfield said parklets have been used around the world to take advantage of unused street space and make it a place for interaction or to provide other beautiful additions to the street scene like landscaping or art.
“We hope that residents will come to the Padre to enjoy Bakersfield’s first parklet and that this pilot will encourage others across the city to install additional parklets for the enjoyment of our residents.”
