Sick and tired of all those cars taking over our city streets? Well, today is your chance to reap some revenge on those 4-wheelers and enjoy the reclaimed parking spots of Park(ing) Day! Park(ing) Day participants have already begun taking back parking spaces, and turning them into everything from cafes to game-filled parks to mini-beaches to good ol’ fashion gathering spots. So hop on your bikes, skateboards and scooters, or just slip on a pair of tennis shoes, and explore all the pop-up parks across your city!

Look for our exclusive coverage this week – we’ll be collecting a bevy of Park(ing) Day photos from our writers and editors all over the world. If you’d like to get involved or host a Park(ing) of your own, there is still time to help with a Park(ing) Day event – just hit up the official website for more details!
