Anyone locally taking part in PARK(ing) Day this year? It’s Friday, Sept. 16. PARK(ing) Day is a annual global event where citizens, artists and activists collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public places or mini-parks.
The mission of PARK(ing) Day is to call attention to the need for more urban open space, to generate critical debate around how public space is created and allocated, and to improve the quality of urban human habitat. Until the meter runs out, anyway.
Here’s more info on PARK(ing)day. Let me know if you’re taking part and I’ll get someone to come take some pictures of your PARK(ing) spot for use in SRTC’s everyday activities. If you’re okay with that, of course.
