Park(ing) Day 2014

On Sept. 19, organizers from the City of New Brunswick, Rutgers University and Middlesex County want you to think differently about public spaces.

Sept. 19 is Park(ing) Day, an initiative that for one day transforms metered parking spaces on roads worldwide into public parks. The purpose of this project is to spur discussion about the creation and use of public space in a community, especially in urban centers.

From 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 19, 49-55 Bayard St. will be transformed into a public park, open for all.

Participating partners include Rutgers Landscape Architecture, NJ ASLA Student Chapter, Middlesex County Planning, The New Brunswick Food Alliance Walk Bloustein/Bike Bloustein/The Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy and the City of New Brunswick.
