San Francisco Bay Area |
An annual worldwide event that inspires city dwellers everywhere to transform metered parking spots into temporary parks for the public good, PARK(ing) Day happens every year on the 3rd Friday in September.
These city-wide pop-up mini-parks can be used as performance spaces, reading lounges or just resting places by passerbys, and is a lovely way to create your own little sanctuary in the midst of San Francisco’s busy city streets.
