Pittsburgh is about to get a whole lot greener. On Friday September 18th, it’s National Park(ing) Day once again, and it’s the second year for the city to be involved. Last year, groups in PGH created over 20 parks and they’re hoping to increase that number this year. I unfortunately didn’t take part last year, but I definitely plan on expanding some urban green space this year!
From Park(ing) Day Pittsburgh:
“Originally created by Rebar, San Francisco art and design collective, PARK(ing) Day is an annual, one-day, global event where artists, activists, and citizens collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spots into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public parks. Anyone can participate in PARK(ing) Day, though it is strictly a non-commercial project, intended to promote creativity, civic engagement, critical thinking, unscripted social interactions, generosity and play.”
