Visit us at PARK(ing) Day DC!

On September 16, PARK(ing) Day returns to take over streets across the world! Please join us for this annual event where citizens, designers, and organizations reclaim parking spaces to create temporary public parks to call attention to the need for more urban open space, to generate critical debate around how public space is created and allocated, and to improve the quality of urban human habitat.

This year, the Landscape Architecture Foundation (LAF) is partnering with BrightView and Island Press to create a pop-up park at the SW corner of M Street and 20th Street NW. Stop by our park on Friday between 10am and 3pm to enjoy a board game, browse through the outdoor library, snap a picture in our photo garden, and meet some of the great folks at BrightView, Island Press, and LAF!

Since its inception in 2005 by the art-design-activist studio Rebar in San Francisco, PARK(ing) Day has brought awareness and inspiration to residents of cities around the world about the opportunities for our public urban spaces. This year will be the largest yet for Washington, DC with 34 groups participating to create a variety of temporary mini-parks. See an online map here.
