Gallery: PARK(ING) DAY RETURNS This September

 

What started as a few grassy plots of sod occupying metered parking spots in San Francisco has blossomed into a world-wide event scheduled to take place September 21st, 2007. Rebar’s Park(ing) Day is back for its third year and is bigger and better than ever, this time partnering with both Public Architecture and The Trust for Public Land. ReBar hopes to expand this year’s event beyond the 13 participating cities from 2006 including New York, London, and Rio de Janeiro; and they’re inviting everyone to get involved- that means YOU!

    An art experamental project in New York in 2002 entitled “Social Parking”.
    After 5 years…this concept became a national global event!
    They should give credit to the person that started this…

    I’m really conflicted over this whole thing. It’s cool that people are out there showing off gardening, and raising questions about green spaces in urban environments. However, it would annoy the piss out of me if I were looking for a parking spot somewhere and they had taken a few of them near my destination.

    This is so exicting! I am thrilled to see the partnership and collaborative efforts between these fantastic groups.
    Rebar has always struck me as having a great sense of humor, too! On a somewhat separate note, check out The Trust for Public Land’s City Spaces Program, where kids themselves redesign and repopulate virtually unusable school playgorunds. Another great example of asphalt going green: http://www.tpl.org/tier3_cdl.cfm?content_item_id=21059&folder_id=2929
