Today Is Park(ing) Day
Today is Park(ing) Day, a worldwide event during which people transform metered parking spots into mini parks, an act of civil disobedience designed to point out that we need more open space in our cities.
Here's the local Web site where you can find a nearby "park." Here's Stephen Box running down some of the highlights. And Streetsblog LA. The Weekly's intrepid interns will be out and about checking out some parks and will report back this afternoon.
