National PARK(ing) Day - September 19, 2008

I am passing along this information from an email I just received. It sounds like a very good project, although now there is very little time to prepare! But someone may be interested, or want to plan for next year.

"People for Parks is hosting a National Park(ing) Day event all day on Sept 19th, 2008.

On National Park(ing) in cities across the country folks are creating temporary parks in places normally used for parking cars. This event will demonstrate the value that green space adds to our quality of life and the health of our community."

For more information, including how to participate in National PARK(ing) Day, a how-to manual and license, photos and videos, and frequently asked questions, go to

Also the the Trust for Public Land web site has more information.
