PARK(ing) Day was started in 2005 by Rebar to raise awareness about the lack of green spaces in San Francisco’s downtown. It transformed an on-street car park into a ‘people park’ by temporarily providing turf, seating and shade. It is based on the idea that paying for a parking meter is like ‘renting’ a public space.

This book celebrates 5 years of Brisbane PARK(ing) Day and its influences on the city. The book includes luscious PARK images, an introduction by Yen Trinh, an essay by Gretchen Coombs and a written piece by Amy Saunders.
