Project Update: Chapel Hill Tire Mini Park

Post Date:09/15/2017 11:32 AM
FRANKLIN STREET MINI PARK

As part of the Town’s Downtown 2020 Work Plan, the Chapel Hill Downtown Partnership and the Town of Chapel Hill are partnering with Chapel Hill Tire and the Hargraves Center to experiment with ideas to activate the public space in front of their location at 502 W. Franklin St. The result is the new Tire Mini Park open now.

The Tire Mini Park is an experiment to determine whether the amenities provided are used and the space activated. Three bike racks have been installed in a coral in the street between the existing parking space and the curb; sets of recycled tire planters create a visual barrier between the seating area and the street; and curved benches have been installed as well.

Users of the park are invited to submit their input to info@townofchapelhill.org.
