Winnipeg Design Festival, Park(ing) Day, Sept 20 2013

Organized by MALA – Manitoba Association of Landscape Architects.

Sponsored by the City of Winnipeg.

Supported by The Downtown Winnipeg Biz.

Along Portage Avenue between Carlton and Hargrave Streets, 9am to 4pm

Come visit, socialize, interact, relax, and discover the eleven individual parking spaces along Portage Avenue that together will form one big ‘block party’ of intriguing installations! Park(ing) Day is an annual global event where citizens, artists, designers, and activists collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into public parks. The goal is to call attention to the need for more urban open space and to improve the urban human habitat… at least until the meter runs out!
