PARK(ing) Day DC 2015
PARK(ing) Day is returning to the District of Columbia on Friday, September 18, 2015, from 9 am to 4 pm. District residents and businesses put their creativity on display for last year’s event, building more than 20 pop-up parks in curbside parking spaces.
Initially created by the San Francisco design studio Rebar, PARK(ing) Day is an event in which residents and businesses re-think how we use public space by converting metered on-street parking spaces into temporary parks. Since its inception in 2005, the event has spread to cities around the world, taking place on the third Friday of September.
Apply for a Park(ing) Day permit through DDOT
For this year’s event, DDOT has designed a process for applicants to obtain a permit using the Transportation Online Permitting System (TOPS). Applicants should familiarize themselves with all the event requirements before designing their park or beginning the permitting process.
Coming soon! A map of approved pop-up parks will be posted after locations are finalized.
