Events

DC and Surrounding Region

For the first time ever, the District Department of Transportation is excited to announce participation in the annual Park(ing) Day on Friday, September 20.  Introduced in San Francisco in 2005, Park(ing) Day coincides with the first day of Car Free Days, 2013, and DDOT is using the event as an opportunity to highlight the District’s sustainability efforts.

So be sure to get out and about in the District on September 20 (car free, of course!) and enjoy the multiple “parklets” throughout the city, as organizations and businesses temporarily turn ordinary parking spaces into mini-parks.  The following is a list of all the parklet sponsors and their locations. You may also view the locations on this map. Visit them all this Friday!
