Park(ing) Day NY

OK, so this is not in Perth…yet…but i think it’s awesome so posting it anyway. Today (18th Sept) is Park(ing) Day in New York (and some other American cities). The basic idea is that you take over a city car parking space and turn it into your own urban oasis for the day. Its all organised and registered, and seems to be a great way to bring some life back into the cities. Its well supported and seems to be getting bigger, and more popular each year. Check out for the details and this site for some images from last year. I think this would work wonders along the Terrace – what do you think?

Oh wait, just looking more into it – it appears the HASSELL-based ‘Young Designers Group’ (the ones behind Places for Me) are doing one in Perth, on the corner of St Georges Terrace and Sherwood Court. Will have to go have a look – hope the weather holds out for you!
