2019 Park(ing) Day

September 20 @ 10:00 am - 7:00 pm

Join us for Parking Day on September 20 

Be a part of our collaborative team to transform parking spots into an engaging temporary PARK for People! Sign up here:
 
PARK(ing) Day is an annual international event where citizens, artists and activists collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into temporary miniature parks, or parklets. The mission of the event is to call attention to the importance of urban open space, generate a dialogue about landscape architecture and the benefits of public green space, and improving the quality of urban human habitat. This is a public awareness event to raise awareness of landscape architecture and climate action.  
 
Join us in for a #ClimateStrike #ParkingDay action to occupy five spots normally used by fossil fuel-burning vehicles in a daylong mobilization of play, dance, community and climate resource sharing.
 
 

When:  Friday, September 20, 2019 10:00 am-7:00 pm
