PARK(ing) Day and The Intertwine Turn Parking Spots Green on September 17

Gray asphalt goes green on Friday, September 17 as PARK(ing) Day takes to the streets in the Portland-Vancouver metropolitan areaand around the world! People turn metered parking spaces and spots in parking lots into mini-parks for the day, demonstrating the impact even small patches of green have on in a dense urban area.
In the Portland area, PARK(ing) Day helps celebrate The Intertwinethe region's remarkable network of parks, trails and natural areas. "We feel PARK(ing) Day is a perfect platform to talk about The Intertwine because of its mix of creative fun balanced with a serious mission and call-to-action," said Karen MacDonald, with The Trust for Public Land, a partner of The Intertwine Alliance.

Started in 2005 by ReBar, a San Francisco art and design studio, PARK(ing) Day has become a worldwide, open-source experiment in reclaiming public space and showcasing the need for more urban green space.

More than 30 groups and businesses have teamed with The Intertwine to create PARK(ing) Day parks throughout the metropolitan region on Friday, September 17. The mini-parks will be set up by 10 a.m. and stay open through 3 p.m.
