Public Space

Public SpaceĀ at Town Green District encompasses activating and enhancing Downtown New Haven’s public spaces to catalyze economic development, improve public safety, and promote the assets, inspiration, and potential of the district.

Public Space

Our strategy is to strengthen the connection between people and the places they share and support its ongoing evolution with the intent to create public spaces that promote people’s health, happiness, and well-being.


By growing and maintaining our partnerships with the City of New Haven and local entities, we help promote a safe environment.

Terrasse Program

The Terrasse Program expands the outdoor dining experience. Restaurants benefit from increased visibility with a fun, unique dining area for customers by replacing an existing metered parking space with vibrate furniture and umbrellas.

Flower Program

Basic clean and safe services addressing everyday conditions, adding a thoughtful and planned flower element gives beauty to the district.

The beautiful handing flower baskets that bloom throughout the summer in Downtown New Haven help create a vibrant environment for visitors and merchants, along with the sidewalk planters spread throughtout the district. New color combinations and plant materials are developed yearly based on hardiness, ease of care, and performance. Fall plants include decorative kale and cabbage.
