Parking Day!

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!

Special thanks to Rebar who started it all and The Trust for Public Land for organizing it.
