The Ormeau Parklet

Ormeau Parklet is a trial project to increase space for Belfast’s people and businesses. It has converted five on-street parking spaces into designed outdoor space using temporary urbanism and collaborative co-design approaches. It was developed and delivered during 2020 as a Covid-19 response, and was the first parklet project delivered in Northern Ireland. The additional pavement space can be used by the public and business, on a test and trial basis. The project incorporates a range of community and business engagement approaches as a collaborative local test for wider civic use, with partners at Belfast City Council, IMTAC, Queen’s University Belfast, OGU Architects, and MMAS.
