The bus stops, two in George St and one in Princes St, were made redundant when the bus hub opened earlier this year. Two other parklets will be installed, but their location is yet to be confirmed.
The parklet installations are part of a series of "trials and activations" for the George St redevelopment under the Dunedin City Council's central city plan.
They were made off site, using a range of materials including steel and wood, before being installed. They can be relocated if necessary.
Mr McKinlay said the structures were likely to remain in place until permanent streetscape works were undertaken as part of the planned George St upgrade. The parklet on Princes St might be in place longer, as it would not be affected by the George St works.
The cost of the five parklets was about $167,000 in total.
