Thought this would be a good general interest thing for DCF.
"On September 19, hundreds of temporary new downtown parks will appear in more than sixty cities across America.
On National Park(ing) Day - Friday, September 19, 2008 - public parking spots nationwide will become public parks.
The goals of the event, according to organizers, are to celebrate parks and promote the need for parks in America's cities."
We have plenty of parks in Albuquerque, of course, but this is still a great outdoor activity, and I'd love to see some public parking space parks spring up in Nob Hill!
