PARK(ing) Day 2016
PARK(ing) Day is an annual, global event where communities can “temporarily transform metered parking spaces into ‘PARK(ing)’ spaces: temporary public places.” The project began with the conversion of a single metered parking space in downtown San Francisco in 2005, but has grown into a global event resulting in new forms of temporary public space in urban communities around the world. The purpose of PARK(ing) Day is “to call attention to the need for more urban open space, to generate critical debate around how public space is created and allocated, and to improve the quality of urban human habitat.”
We invite you to join us at PBR HAWAII’s PARK(ing) Day parklet where we will reimagine a small piece of Honolulu (a Smith Street parking space) as a public mauka-to-makai park. The parklet will feature seating, shade, and native Hawaiian plants arranged by our landscape architects!
Thank you to Better Block Hawaii, NyLawn, and Hui Ku Maoli Ola for your kokua.
