PARK(ing) Day 2014

On the 19th of September OSC collaborated with students from the UofC to celebrate PARK(ing) Day. 

PARK(ing) Day is a annual open-source global event where various people come together and temporarily transform metered parking spaces into “PARK(ing)” spaces (temporary public places). The day aims to drawn attention to the need for more urban open space, to improve the quality of urban human habitat and to generate critical debate around how public space is created, designed and allocated.

The instalment was set up to fit into a parking stall directly across from the iconic Bow building. The area featured benches, a hole of mini-golf, and music playing that was powered by one of the OSC fender blenders. Overall the day was a success, and much attention was gained by local community members that walked past.
