Better Uses for a Parking Space on Park(ing) Day

September 16, 2011

How do we celebrate Park(ing) Day in Arlington? Why arm wrestling, of course! PARK(ing) Day is an annual, global event where citizens, artists and activists collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into "PARK(ing)" spaces: temporary public places. 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... at least until the meter runs out!
