PARK(ing) Day welcomes you to hit the road

Reclaiming streets near University of Arizona, 2008.

TUCSON -- Today is PARK(ing) Day worldwide. PARK(ing) Day is an annual, one-day global event where artists, activists and citizens collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spots into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public parks.

I enjoyed this event last year and plan to quick check it out today downtown on my bike.

Reclaiming paved urban wastes for beneficial uses is a good idea. We need more parks.
