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?

The City of Santa Monica is updating the Parks and Recreation Master Plan (PRMP), originally released in 1997. Join the City of Santa Monica on Saturday, August 25, 2018, for the first community workshop of the PRMP Update at the Civic Auditorium East Wing from 10:00 a.m. to noon.
The new Master Plan Update invites you to give input on future Safe Routes to Parks, improved pedestrian and bicycle access around the Santa Monica Airport (with the shortened runway). When the airport closes in 2029, the new Master Plan will allow us to create a truly Great Park with up to 200 acres of open space, community gardens and 3 miles of dedicated walking and bicycle paths with unobstructed views of DTLA, the Hollywood Sign and the Pacific Ocean.
After hearing from over 2,000 people this summer through an online survey, city-wide pop-ups, and discussions with community groups and boards/commissions, the City wants to share what they heard with you! The workshop will build on community-proposed ideas and spark inspiration for even more ideas. Help develop a shared vision of what Santa Monica want our parks, recreation, and beach to look like over the next 20 years. All residents and stakeholders are invited to participate in this public input opportunity.
Doors open at 9:45 a.m. and the presentation will begin promptly at 10:15 a.m. Light refreshments will be served.
Free bike valet will be provided. Free parking validation will be available for the Civic Auditorium Parking Lot (immediately adjacent to the Auditorium).
If you require any special disability related accommodations (i.e. sign language interpreting, access to an amplified sound system, etc.) please contact Community & Cultural Services by calling (310) 458-8310 or emailing email@example.com at least 3 days prior to the workshop.
Parks & Recreation Master Plan Update Community Workshop #2 will be in January 2019.
