APP DEADLINE EXTENDED | Apply for your Pop-up Park!

Who’s ready to PAAAARKY?! 

Yes, that’s PARK and PARTY’s Hollywood couple name. This September 21, we’re bringing PARK(ing) Day back to parking spots near you! Get this annual global placemaking event on your calendars when communities unite and ignite imagination and expression. It’s the one day a year when you can transform an on-street parking space into a temporary, mini pop-up park.


A dose of inspiration:

You should apply! We’ve extended the deadline to Aug. 26!

Inspired? Got an idea? Great! You should apply. Anyone can apply! If you have an idea on how to create a community space, this is for you! We’re accepting applications through August 24 Sunday, August 26!


New this year:

Neighborhood Clusters

It’s easier than ever to participate by opting-in to one of six neighborhood clusters. Clusters are multiple installations grouped together to make for a safer, less isolated, and a more engaging PARK(ing) Day experience. Not to mention, we’ll take care of the logistics for you (you’re welcome). Learn more about neighborhood clusters on our website and guidelines.


Awards Ceremony

We want to celebrate everyone’s placemaking efforts with an awards ceremony! Held as the culminating event to the Seattle Design Festival, all participants will be eligible to win one of three awards presented by WASLA Washington Chapter of American Society of Landscape Architects. Plan to join us for the awards celebration at the Center for Architecture and Design on Friday, September 21, from 7 – 9 PM.

Woo-yea, this is worthy of a few air punches! It’s totally radical – we know, ha! ?

We encourage communities to use streets as sites for public expression and creative experimentation, as well as for the enjoyment of health and wellness. We hope to see you help reimagine our streets with us on September 21.
