Scenes from a Park(ing) Day

Park(ing) Day!  The idea was created in San Francisco by a couple of folks that fed a parking meter and created a park in that concrete space for people to enjoy.  The park only lasted a few hours and became a global movement.  All over the world our urban environments are almost completely paved when we could all use more open spaces.

This is the second time I participated in Park(ing) Day.  My city, Tacoma, is graced with the kind peeps from Downtown on the Go, who organize, promote, and host this yearly event.

But, enough of this wordy post.  Check out my awesome park in photos:
