Park(ing) Day recap

PARK(ing) Day has a very simple premise: “Citizen Activists around the globe turn parking spaces into mini-parks for a day to demonstrate the need for more urban green space.”
  1. we picked up trash, swept the spots
  2. fed the meters
  3. brought BikeDenton’s park materials via xtracycle
  4. set up plants along the roadway to define space
  5. invited inquisitive strangers to use the space
  6. spent money at nearby local businesses

We’ll let photos and video do the talking, since DRC wrote a nice article about it on the front page today.
