Enjoy a trip to the park(let) in Sylvania

The Red Bird Arts District began installation of the first parklets being added to Main Street in Downtown Sylvania on June 7. A fenced-off extension of the sidewalk with benches, parklets take the place of a parking space on the street, providing pedestrians a place to relax and enjoy the surroundings. The Sylvania project, first launched in May of 2019, has parklets designated as outdoor drinking and dining zones for patrons of area eateries, though they are also open at any time to the general public. An official ribbon-cutting ceremony is scheduled in downtown Sylvania for June 19 at 4pm.
