PARK(ing) Day Philadelphia

Held annually on the 3rd Friday in September

PARK(ing) Day is an annual daylong global event where citizens, artists, and activists collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public places. In Philadelphia, approximately 50 volunteer teams design, build, and install these temporary 170 square-foot "parks" througout the city as a gift to their fellow citizens. All parks are self-funded and together they help to raise awareness of the need for more pedestrian-friendly spaces in our urban areas.

PARK(ing) Day Philadelphia is presented by the Center / Architecture + Design in partnership with the Philadelphia Parking AuthorityAIA Philadelphia, the Community Design Collaborative, + the Charter High School for Architecture + Design.

PARK(ing) Day was founded in 2005 by Rebar Group, a San-Francisco-based architecture and design firm.
