Park(ing) Day

PARK(ing) Day is an annual event where citizens, artists and activists collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public places. Come hang out with us! Join us in Newburgh as we create public spaces for all to share. 

Newburgh Restoration & DoSI- Broadway & Clark Street
Panja - 15 Liberty Street
Blacc Vanilla - 197 South Street

The mission of PARK(ing) Day is to call attention to the need for more urban open space, to generate critical debate around how public space is created and allocated, and to improve the quality of urban human habitat … at least until the meter runs out!

The project began in 2005 when Rebar, a San Francisco art and design studio, and since evolved into a global movement, with organizations and individuals creating new forms of temporary public space in urban contexts around the world.

Providing temporary public open space . . . one parking spot at at time.
