2019 Park(ing) Day

September 20

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.  
 
 

When:  Friday, September 20, 2019 9:00am-6:00 pm

Where: 4-5 spaces on Broadway

Needs (please let us know what you can bring): Specific items that we need to make our parklet great are:

  • potted plants / trees
  • site furnishings
  • wood / building materials (anything reused or sustainably acquired preferred)
  • tools
  • artwork
  • Balloons
  • games (think corn-hole, checkers, board games, puzzels…)
  • Music – anyone with musical skills or have performing group?
  • Volunteers – to setup / take down, engage with passersby, lead discussions, play music and just hang out!
