A parklet is a built platform that can consist of benches, chairs, tables, planter boxes and bike racks and is typically positioned over one or two car parking spaces to transform them from ‘places for cars’ to ‘places for people’.

As part of the City-Wide Place & Business Activation Plan, the Parklet program has been developed to support business growth and activation in the various mainstreets, coastal nodes and townships within the City of Onkaparinga, ultimately making the City an attractive place to live, work and do business.

Seaside Spit on Beach Road is the latest Onkaparinga establishment to host a parklet. The parklet is a great addition to this prime beachside location, so be sure to head down and grab yourself a bite to eat. The parklet will remain in front of this business for a 12 month period until March 2025.

Previous host businesses are:

  • Hither and Yon, de Rose Kitchen, Shifty Lizard Brewing Co. and Redwood Oven in Willunga
  • Beach Road Pizza, CJ's Bakery, Delicia Acai & Protein Bar, The ESPY Bakehouse, The Ripple & Swirl Café, The Bubbly Tea and Coffee Co. in Christies Beach
  • Beck’s Bakehouse and the Coffee Factory Cafe in Port Noarlunga.
