Park(ing) Day: Guerrilla Parking Space Renovation
This September 18th, get ready for the second annual Park(ing) Day. Last year, residents of cities all over the US turned parking spaces into micro parks, farms, seating areas – even a croquet course. The event is a guerrilla gardening style transformation of parking spots into public spaces, reclaiming what’s basically a storage space for a vehicle. The event was started by ReBar, a San Francisco art collective, as an act to expose the need for more green spaces, and less cars in our cities.
