Tucson Park(ing) Day
PARK(ing) Day is a global event that focuses on urban green space. Artists and citizens collaborate by transforming selected city parking spots into bite-sized temporary public parks.
It's a creative, great one-day event celebrating place-making.
Tucson participated this year, and there was amazing foot-traffic downtown! Families with strollers, photographers, even shoppers. City informational kiosks set up out on the streets. Gardeners. People talking, crafting, browsing. Nice. Why can't this happen every day?
