September 2018 – Seattle

Designed and Installed by – Board & Vellum

“PARK(ing) Day is an annual global placemaking event in which community members lead the temporary transformation of parking spaces into people spaces. Taking place every third Friday of September, Seattle’s participation in PARK(ing) Day gives residents an opportunity to reimagine how streets can be used. Originating as a grassroots movement, the initiative has served as a way to repurpose public space and allows for communities to add park space where it is currently limited. In Seattle, we want to encourage communities to use streets as sites for public expression and creative experimentation, as well as for enjoyment and to promote health and wellness.” ~ Seattle Department of Transportation
