Members of the Stockton community are invited to join artists, activists, and other residents in transforming parking spaces into temporary public parks and social spaces, as part of Stockton’s inaugural participation in an annual event called PARK(ing) Day.
Based on the concept that feeding a parking meter is a low cost, short term lease on a small piece of land, participants are encouraged to craft temporary installations that encourage a new look at what’s possible in a public space. The San Joaquin Bike Coalition is pleased to present Stockton’s first ever PARK(ing) Day, and has teamed up with local creatives, businesses, and agencies to create five installations throughout the Downtown core during normal business hours. PARK(ing) Day After Parties will be celebrated at Cast Iron Trading Co., Channel Brewing Co., Bella Vista Restaurant, and the Deliberation Room, with live music and food/drink specials.
The original PARK(ing) Day was created in 2005 by Rebar, a San Francisco-based art and design studio. The project has since blossomed into a worldwide grassroots movement. More at www.parkingday.org
