Park(ing) Day 2018: Downtown Santa Monica!

Park(ing) Day is this Friday, September 21st
10:00 am – 3:00 pm

Come visit us Downtown Santa Monica on Arizona, between Second and Fourth Streets for one of the largest Park(ing) Day activations in the region!  #Park(ing)Day!

Park(ing) Day is a worldwide annual event in which people are encouraged to reclaim and transform valuable urban real estate generally dedicated solely for the automobile into a multi-purpose gathering space for people to interact, relax and experiment. It’s a day to think about the future of our downtown and how we would like to see our urban environment evolve. What is the range of possibilities for creativity in a public space usually dedicated to the storage of a private vehicles?

To celebrate Park(ing) Day, Downtown Santa Monica Inc. has partnered with mobility companies Waze Carpool, Bird and Lyft, as well as the City of Santa Monica Cultural Affairs Division and Santa Monica Spoke for one of the largest Park(ing) Day activations in the region. We are so excited to participate as we all set up mini-parks along Arizona Avenue between Second and Forth Streets and feature different amenities and activities.

The parklets were created according to the theme “Street of the Future.”

Please take a seat, enjoy the mini-parks and share your thoughts on the street of the future.View the event on Facebook here
