PARK(ing) Day is an annual worldwide event where artists, designers, and citizens transform metered parking spaces into temporary public parks.
The Student Planning Organization (SPO) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is participating in this year's international event. SPO is hosting 10 parking spots located near Goodwin Ave. and Nevada St. in Urbana. Collaborating with different organizations and community members, each space will offer a creative approach to activating the urban landscape.
Thanks to the generous support from APA Illinois and their dedication to community engagement, SPO is able to make Parking Day in Urbana Champaign a reality.
Come join us on Friday, September 16th from 9am to 3pm and participate to transform ordinary parking spaces into gardens, stages, arcades, and dance floors!
