Park(ing) Day 2013

It was only eight years ago that the international movement known as Park(ing) Day got started (in San Francisco or New York, depending on whom you ask).  In a short time, this fun way to demonstrate the squandered potential of ordinary parking spaces has become a global phenomenon.

Last month, in cities across the United states and around the world, people used parking spaces to express aspirations for their cities.  Our YEOW this week is local, as a few landscape architects from Baker participated in this year's Park(ing) Day in Old Town Alexandria.  Check it out!

Here's Park(ing) Day's official website:

Thanks to John Fennell for the great pictures!

I'm no expert but this seems more like a living room than a park...

Seems like a great place to Park
