Now here’s something you don’t see everyday. A group of people called “rebar” decided to temporarily reclaim some of San Fransisco’s numerous public parking spaces (street side) by “leasing” this public property for a couple of hours by feeding the parking meter and actually laying down some turf (on a mat), a tree, a park bench and set up a little parking spaced size “park” for everyone’s enjoyment. Their “Park(ing)” page says (and shows) it all including photos and a Quick time video of the setup. People even used it! A very cool thing indeed.
A most great idea. Definitely check it out.
