PARK(ing) Day Takes to the Streets!

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.
Riding on board in the video is fellow Park(ing) Day coordinator, Liz Ogbu of Public Architecture . Rebar  provided not only the incredible design, but the necessary pedal power during the day to
Rebar’s  movable park merging into traffic.
