Park[ing] Day LA this Friday

This Friday, livable streets activists of all stripes will be building tiny, temporary parks in public parking spaces across Los Angeles, in order to call attention to the way that cars have been allowed to usurp our public spaces. I'll be touring these parks this Friday, and I hope to see some of you all out there.

I'm going to start by visiting the Streetsblog LA space at 11555 National Blvd. near Santa Monica, then go hit up the UCLA space in Westwood Village (1130 Westwood Blvd). After that, I plan on heading to Hollywood and winding my way down through the various spaces along the Metro Red Line corridor, and then heading home. I strongly encourage you all to join me!

You can find more information, as well as a map of planned Park[ing] spaces, at http://parkingdayla.com.

  1. Justin, when are you coming by? I'll be there between 2 and 4; Juan will be around between 9:30 and roughly 12. So hopefully you'll see at least one-half of Juan-rinya.

  2. I'll probably be around in the late morning. I want to get the Westside done first so I can be sure to make the bus home on time.

  3. Sorry to have missed you, I heard from a couple of folks that our paths almost crossed. I rode Hollywood to Westwood to Mar Vista to SoRo to USC to Silver Lake and then to East Hollywood. Such a great day, eh?
