PARK(ing) Day (09.18.15)

Take a Tour of Unique Pop-Up Parks on September 18

What if an empty parking space on a Midtown street could be transformed into a pop-up park?  Midtown Alliance is leading a special event on Friday, September 18, 2015 to re-imagine the way we view public spaces and bring more creative energy to our streets. This event also carries a message that Midtown offers a wide range of travel options, including many that can get people into and around the District without the need for a car and the space to park a car.

What is PARK(ing) Day?

PARK(ing) Day is a grassroots campaign that converts a handful of metered parking spaces in urban areas into small, pop-up parks. Now a global advocacy platform for urban planning and transportation, PARK(ing) Day traces its origins back 10 years, when employees at a San Francisco design studio transformed a street parking space into a temporary public park. 

***Get outside and take a tour of re-imagined parking spaces near you 

Take a self-guided tour of these special exhibits for the chance to win fun prizes. All you need to do is request a downloadable tour card and location map from Midtown Alliance, print it out and present the card to a representative at each exhibit to get it stamped. We’ll collect the cards and randomly draw winners.
