Come visit Seattle Department of Neighborhoods (DON) staff as we transform parking spots into mini-parks for PARK(ing) Day, Seattle’s annual celebration that encourages creative placemaking and raises awareness about the importance of walkable, livable, and healthy communities.
PARK(ing) Day is celebrated across the world as a way to reinvision spaces created for cars into spaces created for people. This year’s event will take place on Friday, September 15.
DON staff members will host 11 parklets located in 10 different neighborhoods across the City: Central Area, Chinatown-International District, Beacon Hill, Wallingford, Lake City, Columbia City, Crown Hill, South Park, Pike Place Market, and Pioneer Square. We will be “sPARKing Conversations” with you to hear your ideas for your neighborhood and the city. We’ll also be ready with information and resources on how to tap into city programs to help your ideas come alive.
Every location will be different with activities and treats. Stop by and say Hi!
