Park(ing) Day  began in San Francisco in 2005 when Rebar Studio  converted a single parking space into a pop-up park. The idea is that as long as you feed the meter, the space is yours to use as you please. Since then the event has gained momentum and spread around the world – and today marks the 7th anniversary of the event.
Stay tuned as we bring you our favorite pop-up parks from 2012 – and if you’d like to share photos of a Park(ing) Day  installation near you, simply send an email with a short description to editor [at] inhabitat.com!
