PARKLY

The mission:
We founded Parkly to fast-track the transformation of public places and to accelerate sustainable urban change. We believe that happy places and happy people go hand in hand.

Modular, circular and smart:
Parkly transforms public places with a modular, scalable solution, by creating a platform for hanging out and enjoying the urban greenscape. Parkly modules are easy to mix and match, scale up and down, and use in different locations.

Placemaking as a service:
Parkly creates places where people can sit down, relax, and meet others. Whether a public square, parklet, office space or residential yard – great public places connect people. Parkly offers an easy alternative to slow and expensive renovations. It is a great tool for experiments too. Our services range from urban gardening workshops to green care, and are designed to pump life into the place. Parkly is also a great platform for community-driven activities.

More urban green: The green Parkly modules provide more biodiversity with pollinator friendly plants, more edible experiences with urban gardening boxes, and more trees to public places.

Platform for co-creation:
We are building up the module catalogue with a co-creation model and offer custom designs too. Parkly is a tool for making participation easy and visible for participants and planners alike. Together with our collaborators we offer services ranging from workshops, green care, maintenance, planning and consultation, and data collecting.

Circular at heart:
Parkly is created with sustainability at its core. It is part of the circular economy striving for the wise use of resources, and long life cycles. Our goal for Parkly is to pave the way for the green transition in cities by making the transformation of public places easy and inspiring. For every Parkly module produced we compensate 10 square meters of old-growth forest in Finland via the Finnish Natural Heritage Foundation.
