PARK(ing) Day

Parking Day

SEPTEMBER 19, 2014  8:00am – 4:00pm

Come out and join us for the second annual PARK(ing) Day Providence!

This year, PARK(ing) Day Providence will have 32 parklets in Downtown, the West Side, and the East Side and a protected bike lane on Broadway. We can’t express our thanks enough to the Downtown Improvement District, the West Broadway Neighborhood Association, the Department of Public Works, the City of Providence, and all of our amazing sponsors.

Check out the maps to plan your tour of the parklets on the 19th!

Wondering why the parklet numbers aren’t sequential?
We determine parklet locations long before anyone signs up. Then designers get to choose which parklet spot they want. There are some that no one ever signs up for, and we remove those numbers from the final list because there won’t be a parklet there.
