Join the Party! Celebrate PARK(ing) Day 2016

PARKing Day 2016 Large
Share your parklets with #ASLAPD16.

ASLA invites its members, other designers, and the public to participate in PARK(ing) Day 2016 on September 16. Founded in 2005, PARK(ing) Day is a global, open-sourced event where designers transform metered parking spaces into temporary, miniature parks or parklets.

“PARK(ing) Day really showcases how landscape architects create vibrant public spaces in areas as small as a parking spot,” said Nancy Somerville, Hon. ASLA, ASLA executive vice president and CEO of ASLA. “We love how this fresh, creative approach brings communities together.”

Last year, parklets across the country demonstrated how designers can change even small areas into spaces to exercise, relax or make a social statement.

For PARK(ing) Day 2016, ASLA wants you to share your parklet with the world using #ASLAPD16. ASLA will pick its favorite professional and student parklets with the hashtag and put them into Landscape Architecture Magazine!
