PARK(ing) Day: September 16, 2016

PARK(ing) Day happens once a year, on the third Friday in September, and is an opportunity for Seattleites to temporarily turn on-street parking spaces into public places. This international event raises awareness about the importance of walkable, livable, and healthy communities and helps people re-think how our streets can be used.

In past years, we've permitted over 50 pop-up parks across Seattle, and participation in the event continues to grow. We'll be updating the PARK(ing) Day guidelines and application for the 2016 program soon, so check back often if you're interested in building your own park.

PARK(ing) Day is also a great opportunity to celebrate the parklets and streateries that have opened in Seattle. Parklets and streateries are an outgrowth of PARK(ing) Day and provide a way for businesses and community groups to convert on-street parking into open space on a longer-term basis. Check out the Parklet Program and Streatery Pilot Program website for more information.
