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 http://parkingdaynyc.org/ 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!
