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 is participating in PARK(ing) Day on Friday, September 16, 2016 from 10am to 5pm, turning 30+ metered parking spaces into little public parks. These temporary parks are along Broadway, 2nd Avenue, 5th Avenue and 10th Avenue. Nashvillians are encouraged to visit and relax in the mini parks, which are often elaborate, fun and creative.
