Los Angeles will create four pocket parks by temporarily blocking off parallel parking spaces. It's an effort to increase the city's pedestrian friendliness. If they're a success, more may be added. These pocket parks, or parklets, will use parallel parking spots to provide bike racks, a little greenery and a place to sit.
