Thanks to a reader for sending:

“Behold, DC’s first long-term parklet! It doesn’t seem like the most relaxing location but people are using it.”

A Golden Triangle BID’s press release says:

“Passers-by on K Street in the Golden Triangle Business Improvement District will soon have a new outdoor space. A parklet, which is a mini-park created by extending the existing sidewalk, will transform two parking spaces into a playful, energetic area in front of 2020 K St., NW.

The parklet, named parKIT, was created by two Gensler designers who won an in-house design competition. The BID and Gensler will hold small activities in the park each week through the rest of the summer with a theme of “Making the City.”
