CRANFORD - The popular parklets — parking spaces converted into small parks and outdoor dining spaces — are likely to return to Downtown Cranford.

Resolution No. 2021-185 set for Tuesday's Township Committee Official Meeting authorizes the Downtown Management Corporation to establish and maintain Parklets in specified public spaces, effective April 15th, through to and including October 31, 2021.

According to DMC Director Caren Demyen, the parklets will be set up outside of Ambeli Green Taverna, Old City Cafe & Grill, Venue 104 (sharing with Playa Bowls), Oasis Restaurant, Vinny's Pizza & Pasta, Yale Terrace Brewery, Craven BBQ, and Thirsty Turtle. Along with the parklets, a portion of lower lot 7 will serve as table space for Garlic Rose.
