PARK(ing) Day Comes to Milwaukee
“The mission 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 … at least until the meter runs out!”
PARK(ing) Day takes place on September 17th, 2010 and is quite simply a public space intervention. In over 100 cities on four continents urbanists will be reclaiming public space, parking spots, for public use. They may setup a park, a public art display, or even a ping pong table, but the goal is to show how we can better utilize our public space to create a higher quality urban environment.
To find out more about PARK(ing) Day or just say hi, come visit us between noon and 2 pm on Milwaukee St. near Mason this Friday. If you’re interested in partaking in the fun with us, bring a chair, there will be plenty of room.
