Dublin Parking Day
Making Dublin Beautiful!
Park(ing) Day was started by Rebar in 2005 in San Francisco. Dublin’s second edition will take place on the 19th of September, in Dublin City Centre and surrounding areas. Turning car parking spaces into public parks, games or art installations for one day, the idea is to promote creativity, civic engagement, critical thinking, unscripted social interactions, generosity and play.
Check out some of the amazing designs from last year in Dublin.
Dublin made its debut last September bringing 15 participants. “We decided to go for it a month before, we picked spaces, worked with Dublin City Council and managed to rank 18th overall in terms of participation” says Stephanie Fy, one of the co-organisers.
