Pittsburgh celebrates Park(ing) Day with over 25 locations

Pittsburgh, along with dozens of cities around the globe, celebrated Park(ing) Day on September 17, 2010.

PARK(ing) Day is an annual, one-day, global event where artists, activists, and citizens collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spots into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public parks. Anyone can participate in PARK(ing) Day, though it is strictly a non-commercial project, intended to promote creativity, civic engagement, critical thinking, unscripted social interactions, generosity and play.

Check out some of the photos from the ride to some of the 25 locations scattered around Pittsburgh.
