PARK(ing) Day

Elevating and Celebrating Public Space: A Worldwide Annual Event.

PARK(ing) Day is a annual open-source global event where citizens, artists, and activists collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public places. The mission of PARK(ing) Day is to call attention to the need for more urban open space, to generate critical conversations around how public space is created and allocated, and to improve the quality of urban, human habitats.

Using PARK(ing) Day as a platform, we brought together not-for-profit organizations, businesses, and citizens to take ownership of urban spaces in London (Canada). We changed the quality of dialog about the city we live in while empowering others to do the same.
