The first annual Park[ing] Day LA, was on Friday, September 21st 2007,
which brought together a diverse constituency of community groups,
neighborhood councils, design & architecture firms, professional
organizations, non-profits, cyclists & pedestrian advocates as they
worked together and transformed numerous parking spaces & parking
lots located throughout LA into ephemeral parks for the day. By
occupying a parking spot, volunteers enhanced the streets with
sustainably designed pocket-parks.
