The city of Sugar Land celebrated the grand opening of its first parklet—a public, curbside seating area—at The Shops at Williams Trace on Oct. 27.
Located in front of the SomiSomi at 3520 Hwy. 6, Sugar Land, in the Jusgo Supermarket parking lot, this outdoor community space is part of the Sugar Land Office of Economic Development's #AllInForSLTX program.
The parklet was created to increase business resiliency and provide al fresco seating options with fresh greenery, according to city officials. 281-275-2229. www.sugarlandecodev.com
