PARK(ing) Day is an annual worldwide event where artists, designers and citizens transform metered parking spots into temporary public parks. The mission of PARK(ing) Day is to call attention to the need for more urban green space, to generate critical debate around how public space is created and allocated, and to improve the quality of the urban environment. This year's PARK(ing) Day will take place on September 21st from 8:00am-2:00pm in front of Royal Blue Grocery on Congress Avenue. For more information, go to parkingday.org/.
