PARK(ing) Day Arrives on Magnolia

Oct 08, 2018

Every year in hundreds of cities around the world, PARK(ing) Day takes place as a global experiment in reclaiming and reprogramming parking spaces for people. In September 2018, it was held in Fort Worth for the first time.

On September 28 (after a one-week delay due to weather), Magnolia Avenue was host to 17 parklets designed by local design firms, businesses, and community organizations. From 11 am until 9 pm, these spaces welcomed passers-by to stop and sit, play a game, or engage in an activity. Judges were also taking a look at the parklets during the day, and the best parklet winner will be named at ArtsGoggle, on Saturday, October 20.

Thank you to all of our participants in PARK(ing) Day 2018!
