Citizens! Claim your city back! For the first time in France PARK(ing) DAY will take place on September 17th and 18th. The concept is simple, rent a public space and make it yours; transform grey concrete parking spots into picnickers’ paradise, add flower pots, benches and shade, take out gazebos to the streets, play guitar for passersby from your green patch and share moments of happiness (with)in your city.
Officially, PARK(ing) Day is a ‘User-generated Urbanism’ project, an annual, worldwide event that inspires city dwellers everywhere to transform metered parking spots into temporary parks for the public good.
