Celebrating Park(ing) Day 2010

Park(ing) Day, the worldwide event where artists, activists and architects take over parking spaces and transform them into public spaces, happened this week. Wired has pictures from this year's festivities.

Keith Barry writes:

"Over 50 spaces in New York City alone became miniature public parks, with participants tweeting and checking in on Foursquare. In Paris, the festivities lasted for two days and included bicycle tours of the different parks. And in Brisbane, knitters made trees and grass from yarn."

Wired has pictures from L.A., Poland, Indianapolis, and more.
