This Friday marks a very special event in our state capital – Park(ing) Day is an annual global event where artists, designers, activists, and citizens transform metered parking spots into temporary public parks. The Rhode Island Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects and Transport PVD have helped to organize the inaugural Park(ing) Day in Providence, where 35 “parklets” will occupy parking spaces outside businesses throughout the city.
From the Downtown Providence Blog:
“On Friday, September 20th, you’ll get a chance to linger within temporary 170-square foot on-street enclaves. As part of PARK(ing) Day, an annual world-wide event that raises awareness about the need for pedestrian-friendly spaces within urban environments, 35 parking spots will be redesigned as small public parks. The rule for the day is: if you can park a car in it, you can have a park in it.”
We at Bike Newport are thrilled to be participating in the festivities by leading a mini-bike tour of the parklets in Providence’s West Side and Downcity neighborhoods. We will leave from Saint John’s Park at Atwells & Vinton Streets at 12 PM. The route will be relatively slow, and will take about one hour to complete. As always, helmets are required to be a part of the ride.
Here’s a map of the route:
Hope to see you there!
