Austin Transportation invites the public to transform parking spaces into temporary miniature parks, or “parklets,” for PARK(ing) Day on Friday, September 21.
PARK(ing) Day is an annual, international event that promotes public engagement and dialogue on the need for public, open spaces in urban areas. Austin residents have created numerous parklets of different shapes, sizes and purposes on PARK(ing) Days past, and Austin Transportation encourages the public to continue this creative dialogue this year.
Want to organize a parklet? Be sure to read the application packet for instructions on permit request and proper parklet setup. The deadline for submission is Monday, September 17. For more information on the application process, please contact Paloma Amayo-Ryan with Austin Transportation at 512-974-1150 or email@example.com.
Austinites are invited to stop by and interact with the installations. Stay tuned for updates about participants and their parklet locations on Eventbrite and Facebook.
