I call those grassy strips between the sidewalk and the street "parking
strips". I've never heard them called parkways.

Parkways and sidewalks
Within the last 20 years after moving to Colorado Springs, CO, I picked up an
extra definition for parkway, which previously connoted for me wide,
green-scaped, paved roads.
In CS, a lot of neighborhoods have 2 foot to 10 foot strips of grass running
parallel to, and between the sidewalk and the street. These are called
parkways as well.
Have others seen this usage?
