PARK(ing) Day

Come experience PARK(ing) Day on September 20, 2013 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.! PARK(ing) Day happens once a year, on the third Friday in September, and is an opportunity for any Seattleite to temporarily make parking spaces into parks. The event raises awareness about important issues like creating a walkable, livable, healthy city. The original PARK(ing) Day concept was developed by Rebar in San Francisco and has grown into a global movement with close to 1,000 parks in more 35 countries in 2012.This year, SDOT approved applications for 45 parks around the city, each offering a fun and unique way to engage with the local community. Check out the map below or this link for mobile devices to find PARK(ing) Day installations in your neighborhood.

PARK(ing) Day 2013 falls within the Seattle Design Festival, which runs from September 13 to 22. The festival celebrates and explores the power of design in Seattle. The festival includes a Pop-Up Park Design Competition inspired by PARK(ing) Day. More information about the design competition can be found here.
