Walk & Bike Month Holds ‘Park(ing)’ Spaces Day June 11


By

On June 11th from 10 am – 2 pm, bicycle- and pedestrian-friendly Boulder businesses will commandeer 18 parking spaces on “Park(ing) Spaces Day.” Businesses and workplaces will transform a street or private lot automobile parking space into a “park” area for the day.  There will be Park(ing) Spaces to  play games, kick back and read a book, lounge on some rolled out grass or patio furniture, practice yoga, walk your dog, get a massage, drink some tea or just hang out and chat with other visitors in overstuffed chairs for a little while to take a break.

This is a light-hearted attempt to raise awareness of a serious issue, the trade-off of space allocated for automobiles versus space for human activities. This event symbolizes our desire to rethink how we use our streets. This is a big part of what Walk & Bike Month is all about, raising awareness for a more sustainable community.
