PARK(ing) Day Comes to NW Portland

Parking spaces around the globe to be temporarily reclaimed for people

In cities around the globe today, artists, activists and citizens will temporarily transform metered parking spaces into public parks and other social spaces, on Friday, September 16, as part of an annual event called “PARK(ing) Day.”

Originally invented in 2005 by Rebar, a San Francisco-based art and design studio, PARK(ing) Day challenges people to rethink the way streets are used and reinforces the need for broad-based changes to urban infrastructure. “In urban centers around the world, inexpensive curbside parking results in increased traffic, wasted fuel and more pollution,” says Rebar’s Matthew Passmore. “The planning strategies that generated these conditions are not sustainable, nor do they promote a healthy, vibrant human habitat. PARK(ing) Day is about re-imagining the possibilities of the urban landscape.”

The NWDA Safety and Livability Committee will reclaim an on-street parking space at the intersection of NW Glisan and 21st from 11am-6pm. With the help of Northwest Portland Ministries, the parking space will feature container-grown edible plants. The space will also collect non-perishable food for the Ministries’ food programs.  Funding has been provided by The Portland Enhancement Project.

Since 2005, the project has blossomed into a worldwide grassroots movement: PARK(ing) Day 2010 included more than 800 “PARK” installations in more than 180 cities in 30 countries on six continents. This year, the project continues to expand to urban centers across the globe.

PARK(ing) Day is an “open-source” user-generated invention created by independent groups around the globe who adapt the project to champion creative, social or political causes that are relevant to their local urban conditions. A global map of all participating cities are available on the PARK(ing) Day website, at parkingday.org.
