City of Atlanta: Department of City Planning Park(ing) Day

Park(ing) Day is an annual global event where cities transform and activate parking spaces to call attention to the need for more urban space for people. Join CAP and the Department of City Planning for Park(ing) Day on Friday, September 17 from 11am-3pm to explore the Peachtree Shared Space.

The demonstration project along Peachtree Street between Baker and Ellis Streets showcases the ways we can use existing space, usually designated for cars, to improve the experience of being in Downtown Atlanta. On Park(ing) Day, come explore a range of free activities along all three blocks and join us in imagining ways Downtown can be friendlier for cars, businesses, and people. Activities range from chalk art from the Georgia Chalk Artists guild, giant jenga and lawn games and free Mocha pops!

Register for your (free) ticket to Park(ing) Day here.

The Atlanta City Design is a guiding document for the City of Atlanta. Its purpose is to articulate an aspiration for the future city that Atlantans can fall in love with, knowing that if people love their city, they will make better decisions about it. The book is available online and now is available in print at Posman Books at Ponce City Market.

Hear from the leaders behind the book, Commissioner of City Planning Tim Keane, Chief Housing Officer of Atlanta Housing Terri Lee and Beltline creator Ryan Gravel on September 16th from 6-8 pm at Ponce City Market outside at the Amphitheater. Register here to attend. Both free tickets as well as tickets that include the purchase of the book are available.
