This Friday is Seattle PARK(ing) Day! For one day only, temporary mini parks pop up throughout the city for Seattleites to turn on-street parking spaces into public places. The pseudo-parks offer a variety of public enjoyment from live music, coffee & lemonade stands, visual and interactive art initiatives. Seattle’s PARK(ing) day is a part of a larger, international awareness program that hope to remind people how to repurpose our streets to create a more walkable, livable, and healthy city.
This is the biggest year yet for the event, as over 50 pop-up parks are slated to spout up across Seattle. With extended hours of 10:00am to 7:00pm, you’ll have all day to go check out how your favorite neighborhoods are using their spaces to give back to the city.
