On Friday, September 15, the American Society of Landscape Architects participated in PARK(ing) Day, an annual, open-sourced event. PARK(ing) Day, held every third Friday in September, asks landscape architects and other designers to reimagine parking spaces as small, miniature parks, or parklets. The event aims to educate the public on the value of public space.  

ASLA professional and student members from across the country transformed a simple parking space into a place to exercise, play a song, or start a conversation. Others showed off some local pride or just wanted to relax on a Friday. 

We asked our members to share their parklets on social media with #ASLAPD17. More than 300 users posted more than 800 times with hashtag, which reached more than half-a-million people worldwide. To see all of the posts, please visit our Tagboard.
