PUblic Park(ing) Day


PUblic Park(ing) Day

A group from San Francisco has been promoting parks and park land with public "art" projects to raise the visibility for the need for more parks in the US. Read all about it at their web site here.

The group takes over an on street parking space and turns it into a "park" for the maximum amount of time one can put on the meter. THey pay the parking fee, and then put down grass, a potted tree, benches and then invite folks in to enjoy the new temporary park.


Its a publicity stunt, sure. But is certainly is creative. This year they are going nationwide (and some international cities). Look around on September 21.
