Montgomery County officials encourage locals to participate in National PARK(ing) day

News

Montgomery County officials are urging residents, artists, organizations, and local businesses to transform parking spaces during national PARK(ing) day.

The worldwide event will take place on September 16, where participants are welcome to transform parking spaces into small community parks. County officials say the purpose is to call attention to the need for public spaces in urban settings and to encourage residents to use other transportation alternatives like walking or biking.

80 parking spaces throughout Montgomery County will be available for people to decorate.

“Maybe if we take advantage of some of these alternatives then our environment could look a little bit different especially in the urban areas,” said the Community Relations Manager for Montgomery County Department of Transportation, Esther Bowring.
