For those of you that have been reading Streetsblog for awhile, you know that Park(ing) Day is a sort of unofficial holiday around here.  In 2008, I toured 14 spaces by myself.  In 2009, I had a small crew, and we made it to 13 spaces.

This year, Park(ing) Day looks like it might be a little smaller, and so are our plans.  Instead of a sixty mile all-day challenge, we were hoping to ride a Westside Loop and end at 11555 National Boulevard to set up our own Park(ing) Day space.  If  that address sounds familiar, it should as it’s where we held our last last fundraiser.  But, unless the map Park(ing) Day map adds a lot of new spaces, here’s our plan b for Friday:

At 10:00 A.M. we’re going to roll out our own Park(ing) Day spot at St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church (11555 National) in the area adjacent to the courtyard on Federal Street.  We’ll have a grille, seating, wi-fi, a baby play area and some other fun things including a Westside Interactive model put together by James Rojas .  I’ll actually do the day’s blogging live from our Park(ing) Day space.  We’ll take the space down at around 2:00 P.M. and take a trip up to the other Park(ing) Day site on the Westside, Westwood Square…and that’s it!

Feel free to take a spin by and join us.  It’s going to be a heck of a day, even if it’s going to be a lot easier on my legs than past Park(ing) Days…
