Create your own park this September 20 from 9AM to 3PM!

PARK(ing) Day happens every third Friday in September and is an opportunity for artists, activists, and community members to temporarily make parking spaces into parks. The event raises awareness about important issues like creating a walkable, livable, healthy city. It’s also a great way to raise awareness about about particular community group or initiative.

The deadline for park applications is August 30. SDOT has a webpage with more details including the permit requirements and contact information.
