PARKing Day

PARK(ing) Day is an annual global placemaking event in which community members lead the temporary transformation of parking spaces into people spaces. Taking place every third Friday of September, PARK(ing) Day gives residents an opportunity to reimagine how streets can be used. Originating as a grassroots movement, the initiative has served as a way to repurpose public space and allows for communities to add park space where it is currently limited.

The Year of the Anacostia will be celebrated with a few PARKing Day installations: stay tune for more details.
