National Park(ing) Day Announced For 2007

National Park(ing) Day Announced For 2007

Trust for Public Land

Cities across America will gain temporary new downtown parks for a few hours in September, thanks to a public project sponsored by a national conservation nonprofit.

On National Park(ing) Day – Friday, September 21, 2007 – metered public parking spots nationwide will become public parks.

The goals, organizers say, are to celebrate parks and promote the need for more parks in America's cities. Participating cities include New York City, Boston, Minneapolis, Washington DC, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and others. Organizers are also inviting local groups to participate, expanding the opportunity from one park to a system of park(ing) parks.

Join The Trust for Public Land for a National Park(ing) Day event near you, create your own park, learn about park needs near you, and find out how to get involved.
