In the Jackson Place Neighborhood you’ll find three PARK(ing) day parks on Hiawatha in support of Parking Day. Cafe Weekend & My World Dance & Fitness have three parks posted up infront of the Hiawatha Artists Lofts. Come down and hang out despite the rain forecast. Fun for dogs, kids, and patrons. Check out the map attached and see all 30 parked parks that are situated around the downtown core. One day only. check out http://feetfirst.info/ for details.
What the heck is PARK(ing) Day you ask? Scheduled this year for Friday, September 17th, PARK(ing) Day is an annual, one-day, global event where artists, activists, and citizens independently but simultaneously temporarily transform metered parking spots into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public parks. Did you know that nearly 28 percent of all land in Seattle is dedicated to automobile travel? And that doesn’t even include private parking lots! PARK(ing) Day shows residents what their city would look like if more public space was allocated for urban parks, recreation, social interactions, and other people-centric pursuits, rather than the movement and storage of cars.
Check out the winning Parking Day “most contextual” park. Hiawatha Dog park. Thanks to all that enjoyed it for the day and until next year…. enjoy some of your neighborhood pictures here….
Bring your pet and come visit our “Off Leash” park in front of My World Dance and Fitness and Cafe Weekend on Hiawatha Place South.
but thanks to all of you for getting out for PARK(ing) Day this year. We had 67 spaces citywide, and we’re hoping for even more next year!
