September 21st, 2006 is PARK(ing) DAY, here in San Francisco.
“The challenge is up to you. REBAR, with support from The Trust for Public Land (TPL) wants you, the most creative minds in San Francisco, to create the most innovative PARK in a parking spot.
Please join us as we transform parking spots into PARK(ing) spaces: temporary public parks in areas that need open space – enlivening the streets and improving the quality of urban human habitat.
REBAR is seeking volunteers to help us a carry out a series of PARK(ing) installations throughout the city of San Francisco.”
Go check out the site for more information. Unfortunately We’ll be out of town, so I won’t be able to join in. But, I encourage all who are interested to contact the organizers to see how you can participate.
