PARK(ing) Day happens across the world in September and gives people the opportunity to re-envision how we use our public spaces. The City of Portland has been participating in this international event since 2006. PARK(ing) Day creates opportunities for Portlanders, artists, designers and activists to create more public spaces. The goal of the program is to inspire creative placemaking and to highlight different uses of the public right-of-way. PBOT wants to encourage you to rethink how streets can be used.
PARK(ing) Day seeks to:
-Encourage residents, designers, businesses, artists, activists, and community organizations to use their streets for creative placemaking and street prototyping
-Strengthen community connections
-Increase awareness about the importance of walkable, livable, and healthy cities
