PARK(ing) Day Nashville

PARK(ing) Day promotes the creation of vibrant, open public spaces through a one-day takeover event transforming parking spaces in downtown, Gulch and Vanderbilt University into pocket parks & parklets.

PARK(ing) Day is an internationally recognized event where parking spots in various cities (including Nashville!) are transformed into pocket parks and parklets. Hosted by Nashville Civic Design Center, over 80 parking spaces in downtown, Gulch and at Vanderbilt University will be transformed into vibrant public spaces where people can connect, learn or even simply take a break and relax!

PARK(ing) Day is a annual open-source global event where citizens, artists and activists collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public places. The project began in 2005 when Rebar, a San Francisco art and design studio, converted a single metered parking space into a temporary public park in downtown San Francisco. Since 2005, PARK(ing) Day has evolved into a global movement, with organizations and individuals (operating independently of Rebar but following an established set of guidelines) creating new forms of temporary public space in urban contexts around the world.

The mission of PARK(ing) Day is to call attention to the need for more urban open spaces, and to improve the quality of life and public space experience… at least for a day!
