Park(ing) Day

Streetfilms: Park(ing) Day Double Feature

4:30 PM EDT on September 21, 2009

After covering PARK(ing) Day events since 2006, this year we took it down a notch. We figured it was about time we got to relax
a little and enjoy the space and -- frankly -- not get dehydrated from
bicycling about all day. So sit back and enjoy.

This year more than 20 countries participated.
New York City featured about 50 spaces filled to the gills with people,
sod, chairs, food, fun, games, and, in one case, bubble-wrap galore! You'll
also get a look at "Hex Pack Patio," the POP.Park design competition winner from Samina Iqbal.

After the jump, more scenes from Park(ing) Day in San Francisco, courtesy of John Hamilton.
