From the County website on PARK(ing) Day:
PARK(ing) Day is an annual international event where the public collaborates to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into small parks to elicit a reconsideration of the designation of public space. This global project evolved out of the implementation of a local project in San Francisco in 2005. The art and design studio, Rebar, transformed a parking spot into a temporary park to draw attention to a lack of open space. Out of this initial local project evolved the now global PARK(ing) Day event, which commences every third Friday of September.
Arlington PARK(ing) Day
Events like PARK(ing) Day enrich our community life by creating an inviting streetscape and by promoting activities that allow for social exchange, fun, creativity and critical thinking. PARK(ing) Day in particular can furthermore promote a rethinking of the usage of the public-right-of-way and may motivate the public to more actively participate in the civic processes which shape our urban environment.
