PARK(ing) Day 2011 | green streets | Scoop.it

Occurring on the third Friday of September, PARK(ing) Day is an annual event that began with a single parking space in 2005 when Rebar, an interdisciplinary art and design studio, created the first installation in San Francisco.

Since then, the event has grown as a platform for creative 'guerilla landscaping', as well as a venue for illustrating the need for public green space, civic participation, and thoughtful community development.
