PARK(ing) Day by Laughing Squid
It’s amazing when you stop and think about how much of our cities are dedicated to cars. What was once fertile green land is now sealed in pavement, concrete, and pollution. Well on September 18, we have a chance to claim a little bit of that space back with Park(ing) Day DC. The idea is to take over a parking space (or two or three) for the day and turn it into a park. Get it? Park(ing) Day? Check out this video to see what people have done in past years in NYC.
I think this is an awesome idea and can’t wait to see what people do in DC. What a great way to combine artistic creativity with environmental awareness. If you have ideas, want to volunteer, or even want to sponsor a space, be sure to sign up and get involved on their website. Oh, and be sure to take photos on the 18th and submit them to our Flickr pool!
