PARK(ing) Day 2018
Rockefeller Plaza, New York, NY
Event Type: Other
PARK(ing) Day is an annual international event where citizens, artists and activists collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into temporary miniature parks, or parklets. The mission of the event is to call attention to the importance of urban open space, generate a dialogue about urban planning, landscape architecture, and the benefits of public green space, and improving the quality of urban human habitat.
Last year we were visible from the Today Show filming and got on air during the crowd shots, which we hope to do again this year!
Theme(s): Park where you park – the value of urban green space
7-9:00 am – Make a splash with the Today Show crowd, take some selfies or tell us why you value public green space*
