About the Community Parklets
Parklets in Hammersmith are part of a wider initiative to deliver green spaces, cleaner air, and promote cycling. Eight parking spaces have been made into four vibrant green parklets on Hammersmith Grove. This project is a collaboration between Hammersmith BID, Hammersmith and Fulham Council, Medidata and the Mayor of London, and is unique in that local business and BID board member, Medidata, funded the build of one parklet and Hammersmith BID is funding the parklets’ ongoing maintenance in an innovative business model.
