Did you catch Brockton's first parklet in action?

The City of Brockton's first parklet was on display during the 30th annual Brockton Holiday Parade Celebration, which was the Saturday after Thanksgiving. TDI partner, Brockton 21st Century Corp owns the parklet, which MassDevelopment and the Metro South Chamber of Commerce sponsored. A new young professionals group co-organized by TDI Fellow George Durante built the space. The parklet will expand in the spring and remain in the TDI District throughout the summer for programming and events.
