Park[ing] Day, which is taking place all over the city in nearly 70 parking spaces, is an important day for addressing park space in Los Angeles, something we are on the low side of per capita. It is recommended that there are 8-10 acres of parks and open space for every 1000 residents. Los Angeles reportedly has about 10% of that.

If you see a park (here's a map), check it out, visit, take a photo and enjoy.
