Reno's City Council is launching a six-month pilot program to study micro public parks known as parklets. Reno Public Radio's Julia Ritchey reports.
A parklet is a tiny urban environment usually contained within a single parking space. They act as an extenstion of a public sidewalk, and allow people more places to sit or socialize.
The idea has gained popularity in cities including San Francisco and Las Vegas.
Ty Martin built the first parklet next to his Craft wine and beer shop in MidTown. He says now there's more outdoor space for his customers.
