Some participants in the 2008 Park(ing) Day enjoying their flooring made out of cork and grass.
Going green is getting artsy, but only for a day.
On Friday, September 18, expect to see many more public parks around the city in honor of Philly’s second annual Park(ing) Day. Let’s just hope the weather cooperates.
More than thirty groups of activists, artists and architects (and regular people, too) will transform metered parking spaces into mini-public parks.
Sponsored by The Trust for Public Land, Park(ing) Day is an international event to raise awareness of the need for more parks and public interaction in cities.
So pull up a seat, a blanket or whatever else you choose to bring to your "park."
