What was once a patch of asphalt takes on a second life as something more. It’s a green space. It’s a cafe patio. It’s an open-air reading nook and music room. It’s a few parking spaces, but on Friday it was a park.
Local landscape architecture, planning and industrial design firm Corvus Design brought Park(ing) Day to Juneau on Friday during business hours, joining communities around the world. The first Park(ing) Day was in San Francisco in 2005, but in 2011, when statistics were last available, more than a thousand communities participated, making parks from parking spaces.
