photo cred | Holiday Matinee
It’s the last week of summer so make sure you’re spending as much time outdoors as you possibly can! Today just happens to be a great day to be outside because it’s PARK (ING) Day! One day out of the entire year, major cities transform sidewalks to become pop-up parks (if you will.) This year, Seattle will be sprouting parklets for the first time as a part of this movement and I am so incredibly jealous that I can’t be there for it. Parklets first originated and became popular in San Francisco, but the trend has spiraled to cities all over the world. Why is this day so important? It was designed to get people to start thinking about how much public space we dedicate to automobiles and how the space could be used to better foster community.
