San Francisco, CA

Parkmobiles, the first implemented project of the Yerba Buena Street Life Plan, are high-quality, robust containers that hold lush gardens.

Parkmobiles are a response to Yerba Buena residents’ desire for more green on their streets, and are an identifying trait of the district. As movable parklets, they can be towed, and installed and removed between two parked cars. The Parkmobile program deploys several of these distinct gardens into the Yerba Buena district and relocates them frequently, covering the district with charming focal points. Six Parkmobiles were created for the Yerba Buena Street Life Plan, each one is visually distinct, including plants like Tasmanian tree ferns, strawberry trees, yuccas, and shrubs that attracts birds and butterflies.
