Join us for International Park(ing) Day when communities come together to activate streets for people.

When:  Friday, September 20, 2024

Where: TBD

What:  Transforming parking spaces into temporary parks is a creative way to raise awareness about the importance of creating more sustainable and engaging urban environments.  The event will incorporate educational activities and games to engage participants and inspire a new generation of landscape architects, urban planners and environmental leaders. This type of hands-on experience can have a lasting impact on how people view public spaces and the possibilities for creating more vibrant and people-friendly streetscapes.

This event is in collaboration with American Society of Landscape Architects New York Chapter (ASLA-NY), NYC Public Design Commission, NYC Planning, American Planning Association New York (APA-NY), and Open Plans.

We will hold virtual planning meetings in July and August and a work session in early September. We seek creative team members to help plan and work with students on the event day.
