A better way to use parking spaces

A better way to use parking spaces

National Park(ing) Day is upon us once again – Friday September 19, when across the globe people take over parking stalls and transform them into art installations, performance art, temporary gardens, beach parties, lounge space, jazz stages, putting greens, dance floors – whatever!

It is an open celebration of public space, a playful cry for more public greenspace, and a joyful stand against the continuing domination of the damned car in our urban homes!

Get yer posse together, get yerselves a parking stall, and play!

National Park(ing) Day was started in San Francisco by REBAR Art Collective in 2005 “to re-imagine the potential of the metered parking space”.
