PARK(ing)


If you were in San Francisco last Friday (September 19) you might have had a difficult time finding parking...well, more difficult than usual! Reason being? PARK(ing) Day 2008! "PARK(ing) Day is a one-day, global event centered in San Francisco where artists, activists, and citizens collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spots into 'PARK(ing)' spaces: temporary public parks." Check out the Flikr set here for more photos. •••

That is so much fun! Did you partake, Colvin?

I love this! What a cool idea. I think Texans would seriously panic if that happened here.

Texas would not panic, they'd just drive over the parks with their huge pick-ups and walk away...

I've seen this in Boulder too! I think it's neat, even if drivers get annoyed a bit. How many people really NEED to be driving downtown in cities with great public transportation? Thanks for the pictures!

This is so neat!! I'm going to share this with my cousin who lives in San Fran, I wonder if she partook in this...?

I love this, BUT, would be annoyed. Only because I have a car. I get upset by walks promoting cures for deadly illnesses...whatever, get out of my way. If I didn't have a car, my tune would definitely change because this looks like fun!

HA! Ladies and Gentleman...Meghan B! The only person in the world to admit what she just did online!
