Have you craved a more pleasant urban space in your day-to-day? Keep your eyes peeled on Friday, September 20th, as Oakland residents and businesses will transform parking strips into mini-parks.
This Park(ing) Day will be a vision of what Oakland can be if the City Council adopts a codification of a more permanent parklet application process. Celebrate this day of open-source, pop-up imagination to demonstrate what we desire from public space!
How and where? Parklets can be erected streetside in front of residences or commercial businesses. Oakland is our oyster: a parklet can be as simple as coins (for the meter), cordon (for safety) and chairs (for your guests)!
Want to take it to the streets in a constructive way? Host parklet or volunteer to help a host create a welcoming environment.
