On September 18, 2009, artists, activists and citizens from cities around the globe will temporarily transform metered parking spaces into public parks and other social spaces, as part of an annual event called “PARK(ing) Day”. Perhaps you’ve already heard of it, or participate in this global event. I just recently heard about it from Steven Davis, ASLA, a landscape architect from Fruit Cove, Florida, and thought it was a really neat idea! He’ll be setting up this week at the corner of Ocean Street at Bay Street in downtown Jacksonville. We were happy to donate our bougainvillea to this event intended to promote creativity and civic engagement.
