Bay Area environmental activists today are attempting to turn more than 50 San Francisco parking areas into temporary gardens — one parking spot at a time.
San Francisco coalitions including REBAR, a group that incorporates art with environmental activism, are transforming parking spaces throughout the city into areas that resemble parks, according to a statement.
Participants in the annual Park(ing) Project event this year are aiming to show how parking spaces temporarily turned into parks could connect people all working toward a similar cause of sustainable living, according to Park(ing) Project.
The Park(ing) Project events began in 2005, said Barbara Franzoia, a consultant for the San Francisco nonprofit organization Public
Architecture, which also participates in the event.
