What is it?

Park(ing) Day is an annual worldwide event. Dreamed up by San Francisco art group Rebar, the movement turns metered parking spots into temporary public parks. From green spaces to golf courses, it’s a day and space in which to get creative.


Vibrancy. It’s what makes downtown such a unique destination and what helps draw customers to downtown businesses. How would you like to add a little more vibrancy in front of your business? Park(ing) Day is your perfect opportunity.


Any street in downtown with parallel parking spaces.
