Shoppers, diners and businesses in Stockport town centre will be the first in Greater Manchester to benefit from a San Francisco style parklet.
That's a mini-park installed on-street that features seating, greenery and cycle parking.
To complement an underused part of the street a pocket park has also been installed.
This features an art wall, a concrete table tennis table and chimes for children to play with.
If the monitoring period is successful, more could be rolled out across Greater Manchester on residential streets and near offices and schools.
