coming to an urban area near you this Friday.
In previous articles here on the subject, GPW discussed both the need and the reasons that every time a budget cut comes down the line, parks are always cut first in this town.
From the Park[ing] Day LA people:
The third annual Park[ing] Day LA, which will be on Friday, September 18th, will bring together a diverse constituency of community groups, neighborhood councils, design & architecture firms, professional organizations, non-profits, cyclists & pedestrian advocates as they work together to transform numerous parking spaces & parking lots located throughout LA into ephemeral parks for the day. By occupying a parking spot and feeding the meter, volunteers will enhance the street with a sustainably designed pocket-park.
People need healthy parks! Start by making a statement and enjoying Park[ing] Day LA!
