PARK(ing) Day is an annual international event where citizens, artists and activists collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into temporary miniature parks, or parklets. The mission of the event is to call attention to the importance of urban open space, generate a dialogue about landscape architecture and the benefits of public green space,and improving the quality of urban human habitat.
ASLAS is setting up a Wish Tree for community members to set intentions for their public space. Wishes are written down and ceremonially tied to a communal tree. Student organizers will compile the responses for community members to check back and stay connected.
