2017 PARK(ing) Day

Due to other commitments from the volunteer run Pittsburgh PARK(ing) Day committee, there won’t be an organized citywide effort for this years international PARK(ing) Day. If you or your organization still would like to participate, we encourage you to do so and would be happy to answer any questions that you might have in setting up a park along the street on Friday, September 15th. Contact us if you’d like to join the planning committee for 2018. Sorry and we hope you get to enjoy spending time in a park sometime soon. Thank you

What is PARK(ing) Day?

PARK(ing) Day is an annual, one-day, international event in which artists, designers, activists and citizens collaborate to temporarily transform parking spots into “PARK(ing)” spaces.


The event is an opportunity to have people think about how important public spaces are and how parks improve our communities. These park installations aim to transform urban environments designed for vehicle use into a communal space for public use.PARK(ing) spaces come in all sizes and styles. It could be an art installation, interactive demonstration, place to sit, or showcase for urban farming and gardening. A park bench, tree and grass works too! There are countless of imaginative ways to transform a metered parking space. For inspiration, you can view images of previous-year spots at http://parkingday.org/.

Join this annual celebration of transforming parking spaces into temporary public parks!
