PARK(ing) Day is September 21, 2006

REBAR opened eyes worldwide by temporarily transforming a metered parking spot into a PARK. We reclaimed the street for people…at least until the meter ran out!

Now the challenge is up to you.

REBAR, with support from The Trust for Public Land (TPL) wants you, the most creative minds in San Francisco, to create the most innovative PARK in a parking spot.

Please join us as we transform parking spots into PARK(ing) spaces: temporary public parks in areas that need open space – enlivening the streets and improving the quality of urban human habitat.

REBAR is seeking volunteers to help us a carry out a series of PARK(ing) installations throughout the city of San Francisco.

Join our mailing list for information and updates:
parkingday@rebargroup.org

We are hoping to inspire a group of New Yorker's to bring PARK(ing) to Manhattan! Our man in NYC,  Joe L. is heading up a crew. Contact him to get involved: clark555 (at) gmail.com.   REBAR can help coordinate media coverage through a local Trust for Public Land office.

If you are interested in making your own PARK on PARK(ing) Day, go to our How -To Manual for helpful hints:

Gov. Hochul's "little guys" certainly have big wallets. Meanwhile, the rest of us suffer with declining subway service and buses that are slower than walking. Thanks, Kathy.
