PARK(ing) Day 2021 

PARK(ing) Day returns to the District of Columbia on Friday, September 17, 2021, from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. This annual event is an opportunity for District residents and businesses to display their creativity, building pop-up parks in curbside parking spaces throughout the District's eight wards.

Initially started in San Francisco in 2005, PARK(ing) Day is an event in which residents and businesses re-think the use of public space by converting metered on-street parking spaces into temporary parks. Since its inception, the event has spread to cities around the world, taking place on the third Friday of September.

The pop-up parklet locations for PARK(ing) Day 2021 are located in the map at: . The map also includes a suggested bike route for those who choose to visit parklets by bicycle, DDOT’s recommended mode of transportation for the event! 

The DDOT announcement of Park(ing) Day DC is here:

The Get Out! event of the week is posted on the Cleveland Park Listserv and on All Life Is Local on Thursdays.
