Meet Our New Parklet on York Blvd

People St is excited to announce the opening of a new Parklet in Highland Park. The Parklet is located at 5018 York Blvd, and was made possible by the hard work of our Community Partner, the Highland Park Chamber of Commerce.

This York Blvd Parklet is the second Parklet in the neighborhood – a pilot was installed on York near Ave 50 in 2013, but was retired in 2015.

The new Parklet is located in front of The York, a bar and restaurant that has served the community since 2007. Along York Blvd, you’ll find many shops, restaurants and bars, and the Parklet is across the street from York Park.

To bring the Parklet to life, the Highland Park Chamber of Commerce worked closely with Office of Councilmember José Huizar, Utopiad, and David Garcia. Thank you to everyone who supported the new York Parklet!
