PARK(ing) Day


PARK(ing) Day

Its coming September 17 and parking spaces across the world will be filled with grass, trees, and folks relaxing and taking in the beauty of the day. Here’s what it looks like:

According to their web site —

PARK(ing) Day is an annual, worldwide event where artists, activists, and citizens independently (but simultaneously) turn metered parking spots into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public parks and other spaces for people to enjoy.
PARK(ing) Day is a non-commercial project, intended to promote creativity, civic engagement, critical thinking, unscripted social interactions, generosity and play.

Actually it sounds like fun – go to their web site and get the scoop – There’s no charge, but you should check to see if its illegal in your city. Last year over 700 “mini-parks” were built in 140 cities in 21 countries.

I do know that it’s a good idea to pay the amount required to park. I have heard of some “parks” getting citations for and expired meter. I wonder where the officer put the ticket?
