Over 15 parking spaces will be turned into pop-up parks today as part of the annual global Park[ing] Day event. You can't park your car, but you can park your butt in the seats at the Park[ing] Day LA parks and talk to the space's organizers about why they are taking part in this event.

The idea is to raise awareness of the value, and lack, of green space in the city. So park your car somewhere else, and take a few minutes to check out the pop-up park nearest you today. How do you find them? "The parks are listed on a Google Map and they are also geo-tagged so that they will continue to exist (virtually) even after they're gone. Visitors can tag them on FourSquare, leaving tips and comments for other visitors."
