PARK(ing) Day

What is PARK(ing) Day?

PARK(ing) Day is an annual global event where communities transform public ho-hum parking spaces into effervescent mini-parks (also known as a parklets)! The purpose of this lighthearted event is to demonstrate how much public space we allocate to storing cars, and how we could re-envision those spaces, even if they seem small and unimportant. PARK(ing) Day at schools will be a bit different from a community PARK(ing) Day; school PARK(ing) days will occur at school parking lots, instead of on the street.  


About the PARK(ing) Day Challenge for VT Schools

What is PARK(ing) Day?

Local Motion is challenging teams of high school and middle school students to “adopt” a parking spot in their school’s parking lot, and turn it into a mini-park.  

Why are we running this event? 

We’re challenging people to rethink the space we give to parked cars.  What else could that space be used for?.  

How does PARK(ing) Day work? 

Teams of students (and school staff!) will compete within the school for “best PARK(ing) spot” and the prize will be a fun sculpture and great renown!  Good posters, stickers and slogans will help get students excited about participating.
