Park(ing) Day, Flint

The seventh annual Park(ing) Day, a worldwide event where people temporarily repurpose parking spaces into public parks, is this Friday, September 16. Rebar Art & Design Studio created Park(ing) Day in 2005 with a single guerrilla park installation in San Francisco.

PARK(ing) Day is an annual, worldwide event where artists, activists, and citizens independently (but simultaneously) turn metered parking spots into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public parks and other spaces for people to enjoy. PARK(ing) Day is a non-commercial project, intended to promote creativity, civic engagement, critical thinking, unscripted social interactions, generosity and play.
