SF Celebrates Park(ing) Day

SF Celebrates Park(ing) Day

What if our cities had fewer parking lots, and more parks? Last Friday, we took to the streets to find out — by celebrating Park(ing) Day!

Every third Friday in September, people and businesses around the world take part in Park(ing) Day by turning metered parking spots into temporary public spaces. Groups use the their reclaimed space for activities such as meditation, picnics, art, and more.

We reserved parking spaces in the Mission to enjoy with local residents, setting up games, laying out lawn chairs, and spreading the Lyft love with those who stopped by. Check it out!

It doesn't take much to make people smile. A ball pit can do the trick nicely, for example.

Our team also handed out these appropriately colored flowers to residents who walked by.
