The Vancouver Public Spaces Network is bringing a global event to our city September 17th. “Park(ing) Day is a annual open-source global event where citizens, artists and activists collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into “Park(ing)” spaces: temporary public places.”

The VPSN is hoping to get many people out and about in their own neighbourhoods. Last year the campaign took over Hornby Street and they’re hoping to expand for 2010. Participants are encouraged to “decorate” their spots with benches, mini-gardens, plants, art, music performance, and more. The only rule is that each “park” be non-commercial.

To get involved, contact the VPSN to either talk about how you’ll reclaim a parking spot near you or if you would like to volunteer. They are hosting a planning session tomorrow at 6:30pm at Rhizome Cafe 317 East Broadway.
