Park(ing) Day is an international reclamation of the streets through temporary (one-day-long) parklet construction. Using anything from yoga mats to hay bales, people all over the world build mini-parks in metered parking spaces in an effort to raise awareness about the need for streets to be more human-centered, green and accessible.
Through the Parkolation Project, high school students at Boston Green Academy will be building a permanent parklet in the spring of 2014 with expert consultation from Copley Wolff Design Group. This will be the culmination of their work designing parklets this fall, as part of the COOL Schools program at VSA Massachusetts. In order to raise awareness and money for this project, these students will be participating in Park(ing) Day by building a temporary park in front of VSA MA's office.
