PARK(ing) Day is a global initiative to turn parking spaces into mini parks across cities worldwide. 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, according to Nashville Civic Design Center, Nashville’s Park(ing) Day coordinator.
Nashville will participate in PARK(ing) Day on Friday, September 15, 2017 from 10:00am to 4:00pm, turning 30+ metered parking spaces into little public parks. These temporary parks will be located throughout downtown Nashville, the Gulch, Germantown, and East Nashville. Nashvillians are encouraged to visit and relax in the elaborate, fun and creative mini parks. See photos below from last year!
