Parklet Manual v.2

The San Francisco Parklet Manual

The San Francisco Parklet Manual is a comprehensive overview of the goals, policies, process, procedures and guidelines for creating a parklet in San Francisco. The Manual also serves as a resource for those outside of San Francisco working to establish parklet programs in their own cities.

Applicants and designers in San Francisco are strongly encouraged to refer to the Parklet Manual in its entirety when they are first thinking about proposing a parklet, and to refer to it often throughout the process.
