Welcome to PARK(ing) Day Devonport; the one day of the year where we commandeer carparks and redesign them for public use.
PARK(ing) Day is a movement that began in San Fransisco in 2005, and is an initiative intended to promote the rethinking of public space. The simple concept to transform multiple car parks into shared areas redesigned for human interaction over a single motor vehicle, took off around the world, and is now an annual institution, taking place every 3rd Friday of September.
This is the second year that Devonport has participated in International PARK(ing) Day, a day that falls inside the NZIA Festival of Architecture. If there's a time to shake off winter and come out and play, it's October 20th, our international PARK(ing) Day.
