Green Cities Live from Park(ing) Day!

parkingday_image.phpHave lunch plans today?  Join us for lunch in the park.  We’re taking over a bunch of parking spaces in Seattle and Tacoma and turning them into parks!  And we want you to bring your lunch and hang out at our parks tomorrow, September 18th to celebrate PARK(ing) Day, a global day when parking spots temporarily become public parks.  It’s a day to remember that Parking Spots = Public Spaces. Public space is limited and valuable and it’s an opportunity to rethink the way we balance the use of that space between people and cars.

Stop by either park to show your support and say hello.  Transportation Choices Coalition is partnering with the Green Seattle Partnership, Cascade Land Conservancy, Zipcar, Cascade Bicycle Club , and University of Washington Tacoma to to celebrate PARK(ing) day in Seattle and Tacoma!  There will be giveaways, plenty of information and a bicycle-powered smoothie machine!
