Portable Park

CMG Landscape Architects designed Yerba Buena’s new Parkmobiles: tiny portable gardens housed in dumpster-style containers. The mini-gardens are just one part of the Street Life Plan’s strategy to address the need for improved public spaces.

The six rotating Parkmobiles are a complement to the existing San Francisco “parklet” program, but instead of reclaiming parking spaces to create seating areas, the parking spaces will be “borrowed” temporarily.  The Street Life Plan found that Yerba Buena community members would like to develop a sense of place and utilize neglected public spaces.
