PARK(ing) Day is a annual open-source global event where citizens, artists and activists collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public places. The project began in 2005 when Rebar, a San Francisco art and design studio, converted a single metered parking space into a temporary public park in downtown San Francisco. Since 2005, PARK(ing) Day has evolved into a global movement. The mission of PARK(ing) Day is to call attention to the need for more urban open space, to generate critical debate around how public space is created and allocated, and to improve the quality of urban human habitat … at least until the meter runs out!
The Polish Hill (Trailer) Park(ing) Day was a collaboration between The Caravan Collective and the lovely folks of Lili Coffee Shop featuring friends from, Copacetic Comics Company, Mind Cure Records, the music of Robin Vote and our delicious pies a la mode!
One of the Polish Hill neighbors brought deliciously deviled and locally sourced eggs.
Then Erin became a ghost, and that was the end of Park(ing) Night.
