PARK(ING) DAY – CREATE A PUBLIC PARK FOR A DAY

PARK(ing) Day is an annual worldwide event where artists, designers and citizens transform metered parking spots into temporary public parks.”

The annual PARK(ing) Day is just one month away, on Friday, September 19th, 2014. It is easy to participate. First, sign up for a permit through DDOT. Then follow the PARK(ing) Day manual. You can create a park for just an hour, a few hours, or the entire day. DC’s Office of Planning participated last year along with environmental groups and design firms. The project started in San Francisco in 2005 by Rebar and has grown internationally. Don’t forget to add your park to the 2014 map!

Read articles about PARK(ing) Day 2013 in the Washington Post and Greater Greater Washington. Register  for your DC permit. See the manual to create your park.
