PARK(ing) Day | 18 Sept 2015

parking day 2015

PARK(ing) Day is the time when parking spaces in cities all around the world go from asphalt to awesome. It all started in 2005 when San Francisco arts  collective Rebar came up with the idea that paying a parking meter is a bit like ‘renting’ a public space, so instead of parking a car, why not park something better?

This event, which occurs on the third Friday in September each year, invites teams of designers, creative people and anyone who is passionate about their city to temporarily transform on-street car parks into creative spaces that make the street a more enjoyable, attractive and sociable place for the day.

PARK(ing) Day is all about
•Calling attention to the importance of urban public spaces
•Rethinking the way we use our street
•Prompting conversations about design and how we make sustainable cities

“PARK(ing) Day aims to cultivate your civic pride and invites you to consider the role you- the citizen- play in conceiving, building and improving your local urban environment”–  Rebar, 2009
