Today is national PARK(ing) Day, an art-slash-activism event that encourages folks to occupy a public parking space with a DIY park. There are 700 temporary parks across the globe this year.
This one was produced by the people who work at method in downtown San Francisco. The idea is that you simply feed the meter all day, entitling you to use the space for the things you’d like to do in a park. In the case of the PARK(ing) space above, they set up a putting hole.
Here’s one in Seattle that’s happening right now.
Can you participate? I’m giving you sort of late notice for this year, I realize. However, if you want to cruise by and see a PARK(ing) spot inhabited by some other crew, check out the map on the PARK(ing) Day website. Is there a location near you that you can stroll by?
