A certain parking spot in Ames will be occupied this week in order to create a special seating area for visitors.

The students in the Iowa State Society of Landscape Architecture were given the okay by the city to convert a parallel parking spot along Chamberlain Street into a “Parklet.”

The special project converted the parking space into a small park with seating for visitors in the Campustown Business District.

If you’re planning on checking it out, you better hurry, the Parklet will only remain in place through Sunday.
