Since 2018, the City has installed temporary parklets through a pilot program. Parklets are mini-parks built as an extension of the sidewalk to create more public space and enhance the pedestrian realm. 

To aid local businesses during COVID-19, Jersey City is expanding its Parklet Program by allowing restaurants to apply for parklets to expand outdoor seating. If you are interested in installing a parklet in the parking space in front of your business, please review this Parklet Guide and contact us to submit an application.
