Park(ing) Day - 2011

On Friday, September 16 take sometime to walk around Center City Philadelphia and celebrate Park(ing) Day. Park(ing) Day was founded by Rebar, a San Francisco art and design studio, in 2005 to raise awareness of the need for green spaces in urban environments. By converting a single parking space into a parklet for one day, the only limitation on what you can do is that of your imagination. Philadelphia celebrated Park(ing) Day for the first time in 2008 with over 25 installations for relaxing, cycling, creating art, education, and socializing.

On Friday, September 16 take some time to walk around Center City Philadelphia and visit some of the 34 Park(ing) Day parks. To see a map with the location of all of the parks and for additional information, please visit: http://www.parkingdayphila.org/interactivemap.
