Do you ever get tired of the city life, the concrete jungle as they say? Long for your own little patch of grass? Well, then find a park, or just make your own. That’s what we did last Friday for Parking Day 2008. It was a great success! It’s amazing how people were drawn to the sight of green… or maybe they just thought it was weird to see a park in the middle of cars on a busy road. Either way, it garnered a lot of attention and all the feedback was positive. Some people even ask us if we could make it permanent. That could be a little difficult (grass doesn’t usually grow well on asphalt), but we can always use more green. You can check out all the mini parks around the world here on Flickr. I also saw Method’s park on my way home and wanted to give them some props as well. There was so much creativity involved in all the parks! I already can’t wait for next year!
our bamboo jungle…
