Treasurer’s Office is Preparing for 2018 PARK(ing) Day

Screen Shot 2018-08-21 at 1.35.52 AMApplications are now being accepting for this year’s PARK(ing) Day celebration, which is Friday, September 21.

PARK(ing) Day is a collaborative effort between the Treasurer’s Office and several neighborhood organizations to find alternative uses for metered parking spaces for a day. Parking meters are “rented” by participants and turned into temporary public places.

PARK(ing) Day started in 2005 in San Francisco when a group of architects “rented” a parking space by paying the meter and setting up a small park. It has since become an international event. St. Louis has participated in PARK(ing) Day since 2011.

To apply, download, fill out and return the application to the Treasurer’s Office. Please call 622-3434 or email if you have any questions.
