Park(ing) Day

PARK{ing} Day Miami turns metered parking spots into temporary mini-parks.

September 20th from 8am-8pm
Turning regular metered parking spots into temporary mini-parks

On Friday, September 20, 2013, from 8am 8pm, various onstreet, metered parking spaces throughout Downtown Miami will be converted into mini public park spaces for people. The goal is to engage the community in an open conversation about urban public space and the relationship of transportation to placemaking through a positive impactful demonstration project.

One PARK(ing) space will be located on NE 2nd Ave, between 3rd & 4th Streets, in front of MDC’s Wolfson campus. A second PARK(ing) Day location will be in front of Elwood’s Pub on the corner of NE 3rd Ave and 2nd Street.

This is collaborative effort by Urban Impact Lab, Whereby.Us, Miami DDA and the Miami Parking
Authority (MPA). Additional collaborators are encouraged and welcomed.

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. 

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. >More
