Park (ing) Day



We will have new neighbours for the day tomorrow... In two parking spots on Manor Street, the good folk of Lifeline are transforming a little corner of Manor Street into a park for the day. Inspired by recent winds, their theme is 'Windfall': bring along any excess crops you have and share, swap and be inspired! More details below, or find them on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/groups/201267119929061/ or Twitter: www.twitter.com/parkingdaydub


Dublin’s first Park(ing) Day is happening this Friday 16th September from 10am to 4pm at various locations around the city.

Park(ing) Day transforms on-street car parking spaces into public open spaces for one day. Car parking spaces around the city – from Arbour Hill to Portobello and right through the city centre – will be converted into temporary public parks.

The purpose is to create awareness of sustainable travel and the need for more public open space in urban areas. It aims to promote healthy cities by engaging with the public through temporary art.


The event has become a global phenomenon since it started in San Francisco just a few years ago, with over 180 cities now taking part.

Information about Park(ing) Day world-wide is online at www.parkingday.org

The first Dublin Park(ing) Day event is supported by Dublin City Council and the LifeLine Project. It is part of EU Mobility Week, a series of events promoting better mobility.
