September 21, 2007
On Friday, September 21, 2007, organizations around the country will temporarily turn a parking spaces in downtown areas into a green space (or parks) with grass, trees, a park bench and people. This is a project of the Trust for Public Lands and other cities across the nation such as San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle, St. Paul, Chicago, and New York. It is an opportunity to reclaim a public parking space (for a few hours) to illustrate the importance of green spaces (trees, grass and other plants) in our cities and communities. Our cities continue to make more room for parking cars while funds spent on trees and parks declines.
