It's more than a parklet

The Boardwalk on Commercial Street. It's a social experiment for building a sense of community.

It was in 1969 when Nevada City lost its town square to Highway 49/20 interchange, and the community has been re-defining itself ever since. In recent years, in its pursuit to become more resilient, Nevada City has come to understand the value of community space and has been working to reclaim its commons through projects such as the rehabilitation of Robinson Plaza and the Nevada City Farmers Market.
