PARK(ing) Day is just around the corner and now is the time to start getting together with friends, neighbors, colleagues, and family to think about how to design and decorate your very own pop-up PARK! 

2017 Applications are open APPLY NOW due August 18th.

PARK(ing) Day happens once a year in September and is an opportunity for Seattleites to rethink how streets can be used. Seattle has participated in this international event since 2007 and has given people the opportunity to temporarily turn on-street parking spots into public spaces. The program is intended to encourage creative placemaking, particularly in places where access to parks is limited, as well as raise awareness about the importance of walkable, livable, and healthy communities.

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 and Streatery Program website for more information.
