Portland Realtor Fun Tips: PARK(ing) Day is Hitting Portland This Friday

Tuesday, September 14th, 2010

PARK(ing) Day is an international movement to reclaim urban spaces as public parks for a day, and it’s coming to Portland this Friday. More than thirty small “parks” will be appearing throughout the metro area, but you won’t see Portland Real Estate popping up next to them – they’ll be taking up metered parking spots, parking lots, and other urban areas between 10 am and 3 pm. Portland isn’t known for its lack of green space, but we’re excited to see the creative spaces people come up with.

A combination of guerrilla art exhibit, community activism, and a good dose of folly, organizations throughout Portland will be block off parking spaces, fill them with grass, bark, play structures, benches, and other community-centered elements to show what good green can do for urban areas.

If you’re thinking, “Hey, does the city know about this?” The answer is most definitively yes. In fact, Portland Metro is hosting their own spontaneous park at the corner of Northeast 8th and Multnomah. Over 30 different financial partners throughout the city, and more than 100 public, private, and nonprofit groups will be involved with PARK(ing) Day, which meets resistance in some cities like New York and Los Angeles. It may be that Portland is more pedestrian- and bike-friendly in general, but its great to see the city getting involved with such a cool project instead of shutting it down for the sake of “public order” or profit. This is an amazing city, indeed.
