Brisbane PARK(ing) Day 2019
Brisbane City Council once again proudly supported International PARK(ing) Day in 2019.
On Friday 20 September 2019, Brisbane joined cities from around the world in temporarily transforming parking spaces into 'PARKs'. Teams of creative people were given the opportunity to transform on-street car parking spots into temporary public parks and other spaces for people to enjoy for the day.
14 PARKs were created along Little Stanley Street, South Brisbane and included interactive art spaces, green sanctuaries, live performances and free workshops.
PARK(ing) Day encourages people to see parking spaces from a different angle and is a unique opportunity to do something creative to liven up our city's streets. Starting in San Francisco in 2005, PARK(ing) Day is now celebrated in more than 160 cities across six continents.

More about PARK(ing) Day
PARK(ing) Day helps challenge how we think about urban spaces, aiming to encourage people to reduce car dependency and instead consider public and active travel modes. This aligns with Council’s Transport Plan for Brisbane – Strategic Directions which recognises the need for motorists to reduce reliance on private vehicle travel to improve Brisbane’s sustainability, environment and air quality, and liveability.
