Philadelphia has lots of great public spaces, but for today only, a few more have popped up. It’s Park(ing) Day, where citizens and organizations transform ordinary street parking spots into public spaces! Park(ing) Day is a worldwide event held on the third Friday in September. This year, activists, artists, and others have created 59 temporary parks in Philadelphia–about 30 spots more than in years past.
