The City of Lucerne in Switzerland is actively promoting walkability by incorporating additional seating and meeting spaces, reducing speed limits, and transforming parking spots into communal areas. The spot has swiftly evolved into a popular hangout, showcasing the diverse functionalities of Parkly modules.

Developing walkable cities extends beyond establishing the most direct and secure routes from point A to B. It involves creating spaces to “park people” – providing opportunities to rest, enjoy a coffee, make a phone call, read a map, or simply relish the scenic view, such as Lake Lucerne.
