[gdlr_image_link type=”image” image_url=”” link_url=”” alt=”” target=”_blank”]NASHVILLE. On Friday, September 16, Nashville will join cities across Tennessee and the world to celebrate the 11th anniversary of PARK(ing) Day.
Urban parking spaces will be transformed by community volunteers and art organizations into temporary pocket parks for social engagement, reflection, and traffic calming from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The event is always held on the third Friday of September.
In Nashville, contact Ron Yearwood at Ron@civicdesigncenter.org if you are interested in creating a parklet on Sept. 16.
In Chattanooga, contact Amy Donahue at RiverCity Company at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about PARK(ing) Day plans along Main, Market and Frazier Avenue.
PARK(ing) Day is an open-source global event that began in 2005 when Rebar, an art and design studio, converted a single metered parking space into a temporary public park in downtown San Francisco.
We would love to share photos of your PARK(ing) Day experience. Send photos to Laurie Vaughen at email@example.com to be included in our Nashville Interiors PARK(ing) Day 2016 gallery.
