Love this annual event that transforms parking spaces into parklets. The one day happening takes place all over the world. This local temporary park initiative is put on by the Vancouver Public Space Network (VSPN). Details below.
Park(ing) Day is an annual celebration that takes place around the globe. It invites participants to creatively re-imagine metered parking spaces as… parks, mini gathering places, theatres, dance floors, landscape installations, art stations, you name it! It’s a challenge that’s been producing some excellent results since it was first started (in good ‘ol San Fran) back in 2005.
2014 will mark the 7th year that the VPSN has held a Park(ing) Day event in Vancouver, and this year, as always, we’re looking for volunteer assistance to make it a success.
The event takes place on Friday, Sept. 19. For more information contact Aateka Shashank at aateka [at] vancouverpublicspace [dot] ca.
