Park(ing) Day Dallas
The amount of public space in Downtown Dallas increases each September as citizens transform parking spaces into short-term “PARK” installations throughout the city. Spaces normally reserved for cars are temporarily transformed, allowing downtown employees and residents to socialize in re-envisioned public spaces. The project is part of an effort to make Dallas a more lively, active and community-oriented place to live, work and play.
Fun at PARK(ing) Day DallasPARK(ing) Day Dallas promotes the use of temporary green space as a form of community activism. Partnering with city leaders, a series of parking spaces are reserved for organizations, private companies and individuals who form teams to transform spaces into areas for relaxing, networking and various forms of entertainment. After a few hours the installations come down and the space reverts back to metered parking. Teams are encouraged to use sustainable construction materials and partner with local charities to extend the impact beyond the event.
The event will take place on Main Street between Harwood Street and Field Street.
