PARK(ing) Day DC 2018

PARK(ing) Day 2018

PARK(ing) Day returns to the District of Columbia on Friday, September 21, 2018, from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. This annual event is an opportunity for District residents and businesses to display their creativity, building pop-up parks in curbside parking spaces in six of the District's eight wards.

Initially started in San Francisco in 2005, PARK(ing) Day is an event in which residents and businesses re-think the use of public space by converting metered on-street parking spaces into temporary parks. Since its inception, 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

DDOT will coordinate the permitting process for applicants 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.

The deadline to apply for PARK(ing) Day is Friday, August 17, 2018.

Before sketching out a design for your own pop-up park, please review the event guidelines and requirements. After finalizing your design, please follow the attached instructions outlining the application process through DDOTs TOPS.
