PARK(ing) Day Providence


PARK(ing) Day is an annual, international event that brings together artists, designers, non‐profit organizations, and citizens to transform metered parking spaces into temporary public parks known as parklets. In 2014, PARK(ing) Day Providence participants created over 30 parklets throughout the city. Parklet designers work with local businesses, bringing enthusiasm and energy to the area, while being sensitive to the needs of the shopkeepers and their customers. (PARK)ing Day 2016 will take place in three Providence neighborhoods: downtown Providence, West Broadway, and the East Side. Sign up now to create a parklet, sponsor a parklet, or volunteer for the day!
