Group Description

Welcome to the worldwide PARK(ing) Day Group!

This group is for all pics and videos related to PARK(ing) Day, no matter where you are or what year you participated.

Even if your pictures are already uploaded to other groups, you can add them here too. We hope to gather a comprehesive library of this annual event, and keep it growing year after year as more cities get involved.

Introducing the PARK(ing) Day Network

Now you can connect with other PARK(ing) Day fans, and organize your own Park on the PARK(ing) Day social network. Visit my.parkingday.org to find a group in your city, start your own Park planning group, or share your experiences.

Plus, upload your pictures to this group and geo-tag them (drag them to the map in Flickr) and they'll show up on the PDNetwork's World Map.

About Park(ing) Day

Park(ing) Day is a one-day, global event centered in San Francisco where citizens, artists and activists collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into “Park(ing)” spaces: temporary public places.

The mission of Park(ing) Day is to call attention to the need for more urban open space, generate critical debate regarding how public space is created and allocated, and improve the quality of urban human habitat … at least until the meter runs out!

A quintessentially “open source” project, Park(ing) Day has been adapted and remixed to address specific social issues in a variety of urban contexts around the world. Since its inception in 2005, Park(ing) Day has expanded to include a broad range of interventions well beyond the basic “tree-bench-sod” park typology first modeled by Rebar. In recent years, participants around the world have built interventions ranging from a free health clinic, urban farming and ecology demonstrations, political seminars, art installations, a free bike repair shop and even a wedding ceremony.

Park(ing) Day has effectively re-valued the metered parking space as an important part of the commons - a site for generosity, expression, socializing and play. And although comprised of temporary interventions, Park(ing) Day has inspired direct participation in the civic processes that permanently alter the urban landscape on a number of occasions.
