Park(ing) Day Philadelphia
The 6th annual Park(ing) Day Philadelphia kicks off tomorrow, Friday September 20th from 8 AM to 5 PM. Activists, artists, architects, citizens, businesses & organizations transform metered parking spaces into temporary public parks. 170 square feet may not seem like a lot, but the creativity is released into re-imagining our city with way more green.
Spaces spread across the city from Manayunk, Mount Airy, Northern Liberties, University City and more. Started in San Fran in 2005, Park(ing) day is meant to raise public awareness of green and pedestrian-friendly spaces in urban environments. Previous park(ing) day parks have varied from landscaped meeting areas, cafés, mini golf courses, and inventive public art displays.
Make sure to visit the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS) Pop-Up Garden at the end for an after party!
