Event Date:

People's Parking Lot
500 Block of East Pine

As an addition to traditional Park(ing) Day parks, where participants create temporary parks in parking spaces, we will be transforming this once vibrant block, illegal parking lot, and now vacant space into a collection of small parks for the day. The event was approved by the owners of the space and we also received a smART ventures grant from the Seattle Arts Commission to help make the event a reality.
