Town’s first ‘parklet’ open until November


Lexington has opened its first “parklet” in Lexington Center by converting two parking spaces into a small park with seating and bike racks. The town opened the parklet at the end of June at 1720 Massachusetts Ave. in front of the Ride Studio Café, where it will remain open to the public through Nov. 1. Lexington’s Economic Development and Planning departments partnered with local businesses to create the semi-permanent structure that has been installed in the parking spots with the goal of creating fresh interest in the town center, as well as enhancing commerce and encouraging alternative modes of transportation with improved accommodations, according to Melisa Tintocalis, Lexington’s economic development director.
