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 quality of life and experience according to Nashville Civic Design Center, Nashville’s PARK(ing) Day coordinator.
Nashville will participate in PARK(ing) Day on Friday, September 20, 2019, from 9:00am to 5:00pm, turning dozens of parking spaces into little public parks. These temporary parks will be located throughout downtown Nashville, the Gulch, Vanderbilt University, and East Nashville. Nashvillians are encouraged to visit and relax in the elaborate, fun, and creative mini parks. See photos below from previous years!
