Station Road Parklet, Waltham Forest
Located on Station Road Road in the London Borough of Waltham Forest, this Parklet is part of a drive by one of London’s most environmentally progressive boroughs to create green spaces and facilities to benefit local residents and businesses. Positioned outside the popular Sea Breeze Caribbean Kitchen, it provides seating for customers, and passers by, to sit and relax amongst vibrantly coloured planters and an aesthetic plant selection. As well as seating there is a section for children to enjoy, with smaller furniture and a blackboard to draw on, meaning that the Parklet is a facility for everyone in the community.
The design is a stylish combination of planters and benches on a wooden decking. There is a variety of different sized steel planters, powder coated with the colours of the council, and housing Himilayan Birch Trees (Betula utilis), climbing Star Jasmine (Trachelospermum jasminoides) and a variety of smaller flowering plants such as myrtle (Vinca minor).
