PARK(ing) Day−Cities around the U.S.

Parking Day
Parking Day

PARK(ing) Day is another program providing small pieces of open space on a temporary basis.  It is a one-day, global event centered in San Francisco where artists, activists, and citizens work together to temporarily transform metered parking spots into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public parks. PARK(ing) Day was initated in 2005 by REBAR, an art and design collective based in San Francisco. Initiators identified a site in downtown San Francisco with few parks but afternoon sun. They installed a small, temporary public park that provided seating, shade, and green space for the two hours purchased from the parking meter.  Park(ing) day is now an annual event held in cities around the world.
