Don't Forget, it's Park[ing] Day!
Keep your eyes peeled for the perfect spot--not to park your car but to park your butt or two feet in a comfy, welcoming, back-to-nature focused space meant to remind us that in all this concrete we need to have some green space. You'll find spaces all over town converted into mini-green getaways, complete with all manner and variety of benches, greenery, decor, motifs, and opportunities to socialize with people from the neighborhood. Hosted by citizens, groups, architecture firms and others, these once-a-year spots are worth checking out today.
If you're looking for a spot, use this map of Park[ing] Day LA spaces to help navigate the terrain. And even though you might be too busy relaxing and enjoying your moment of zen in the mean streets, if you take some photos, hey--why not submit them to our LAist Featured Photos pool on Flickr?
Happy Park[ing] Day!
