It has been a busy morning across the city centre with the opening of the Beach Road cycle lane extension and the annual celebration of Park(ing) Day. This year most of the park(ing) day activity has been focused on High Street/Lorne Street. Here are some photos. Please add a comment if there are other events happening across the city. More photos will be added later in the day.
PARK(ing) Day is a annual open-source global event where citizens, artists and activists collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public places. The project began in 2005 when Rebar, a San Francisco art and design studio, converted a single metered parking space into a temporary public park in downtown San Francisco.
