Temporary Parklets Occupy Parking Spaces During Park(ing) Day L.A. 2015
In spaces around the world, Park(ing) Day happens annually on the third Friday of September. Groups take over parking spaces, feed the meter, and create and occupy temporary parklets. It all draws attention to the potential for small urban spaces, and the high opportunity cost for turning over so much urban land to storing private automobiles.
SBLA made it out to four Park(ing) Day L.A. parklet sites last Friday. Below are some highlights.
