Last Friday was Park(ing) Day  – the day where San Franciscans and sprawl-fighting citizens around the world reclaimed parking spots  to turn them into green spaces! What started as a few grassy plots of sod  occupying metered parking spots in San Francisco has blossomed into a world-wide event , and this year was a HUGE global success. In San Francisco alone, over 55 parking spaces were occupied by volunteers, government offices, and local businesses. While the parks were a nice divergence from the usual cars that occupy their space, the park that got the most attention was constantly on the move.
