This Friday, ordinary parking spaces turn into makeshift public parks and social spaces for PARK(ing) Day. The spaces are temporarily transformed by independent groups who adapt the project to advance local creative, social or political causes.
The PARKs are unique spots with different messages and attractions, including an architect -designed inhabitable sculpture at 1st and Howard, a blow-up car parking installation at 2nd and Brannan, free compost and a seed lending library at Grove and Hyde, a traveling food installation at Mission and New Montgomery, a work/play park at Grant and Market, and the Wigg Party will be transforming Fell between Oak and Scott to demonstrate the advantages of removing parking on just one block. Check out the map for a full list of PARKs.
After you’re done park(ing), head to the After Party hosted by Rebar.
Friday, Sept 16th
