Park(ing) Day is upon us, happening September 19th!
An annual international event, Park(ing) Day has gained momentum and garnered awareness in the last few years throughout Maryland as well as globally.
The concept of the event is to transform a metered parking spot into a temporary public park for the day.
In doing this, we hope to call to attention the need for more urban open space. In our experience, this one day installation creates great positive movement on critical debates around how public space is created and designated. Intreegue has participated in this event the last few years in downtown Annapolis to gain momentum surrounding the possibilities and impact these small 'parklets' can have in urban settings.
This year we wanted to promote the University of Maryland Student ASLA group and their efforts on campus for this event. The UMD SASLA will be creating a 'parklet' in front of Cole Field House on University of MD campus this Friday. If you happen to be in the area, please stop by and enjoy the 'parklet'!
