From the venue:The mission of Park(ing) Day is to transform metered parking spaces into vibrant public spaces to help spark a discussion with citizens about how public space is created and allocated. Organizers help the community re-imagine what public spaces could be. Last year, the Student Planning Association occupied two parking spaces in Tech Square on Fifth Avenue and turned them into parks filled with trees, plants, seating, games, and educational handouts. This year, Georgia Tech Planning Group, Midtown Alliance, Trees Atlanta, and King of Pops are joining in on the mission.
