while not generally thought of as very hospitable spaces for your average biped, parking spaces in cities across america were transformed on friday to become mini public spaces for something other than four-wheeled wonders. park(ing) day encourages folks to transform metered spaces into their very own public parks. so people rolled at the sod, cranked up the tunes, dropped a few quarters into the meter and had themselves a lovely day in the park(ing) spot. for more photos, check out inhabitat’s coverage of the festivities and go the official website. i’m thinking i’ll roll out my own picnic blanket next year!

they do this in nyc too, i think it's so cool but why does it have to be on a friday when i (and most people!!) are working!?
I think it is the greatest idea! I saw many parks here in San Francisco on park(ing) day. Good fun!
wow, I've never heard of this before! What an awesome and creative idea! Thank you for sharing!
This is awesome!
What a perfect idea! I love it and the great photos! xoxo
