PARK(ing) Day Calgary

The deadline for opportunity has passed.

PARK(ing) Day is an annual open-source global event where citizens, artists and designers collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into PARK(ing) spaces—temporary public spaces.

The project aims to encourage critical thought and to spark our imaginations about how public spaces can be used.

​The City of Calgary, in partnership with the Alberta Association of Landscape Architects, invite you to transform an everyday parking stall into experimental design and showcase the creative ways you think urban public space could be used.

Locations: Various locations around the city
Dates: September 18 – 20, 2020
