Brisbane PARK(ing) Day 2018
Brisbane City Council proudly supported International PARK(ing) Day this year, giving artists, designers and community groups the opportunity to transform on-street parking spaces across Brisbane into creative, people-friendly spaces.
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 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.
