PARK (ING) Day 2018!

If you could turn an 8'x20' parking space into anything, what would it be? A photobooth? A micro-forest? An art installation? 

On September 21 you can show off your PARK(ing) Day creation to all of Portland!

PARK(ing) Day happens across the world in September and gives people the opportunity to re-envision how we use our public spaces. The City of Portland has been participating in this international event since 2006. PARK(ing) Day creates opportunities for Portlanders, artists, designers and activists to create more public spaces. The goal of the program is to inspire creative placemaking and to highlight different uses of the public right-of-way. PBOT wants to encourage you to rethink how streets can be used.

So, what will you do? The sky's the limit! Just follow our PBOT PARK(ing) Day Manual to guide you on designing a safe and compliant installation.

The PARK(ing) Day permit is FREE, and the application period is now OPEN.
