The King Street Transit Priority Corridor improved how transit works on King Street. It also provided the opportunity to explore bold, transformative ideas about how public space can be used in Toronto, and has provided expanded opportunities for public life and activity in new curb lane public space areas.

Temporary parklets are creative structures that encourage people to gather, sit, and enjoy their surroundings. They are an economical and innovative solution to provide more space for people in areas that have limited sidewalk space.

The City is requesting concept proposals for temporary parklets for the King Street Transit Priority Corridor. These parklets would add an element of fun, visual interest, and added amenities to the new public space areas. The City of Toronto is encouraging submissions that support the City’s environmental stewardship objectives.
