Event Description

Join friends and neighbours in temporarily transforming a parking spot in Newton on Friday, September 19, at 12:00 noon outside of Espresso Café, #1112-7330 137 Street.

The event is part of the global “Park(ing) Day” initiative:

“The mission of PARK(ing) Day is to call attention to the need for more urban open space, to generate critical debate around how public space is created and allocated, and to improve the quality of urban human habitat… at least until the meter runs out!

Participants are invited to bring items to decorate the parking spot. Items may include chairs, carpets, plants and other home furnishings. Participants are also invited to bring games and activities that will encourage interactions and foster friendships. The parking meter will be feed for the duration of the event, so participants are also asked to bring change to keep the meter running!

Participants are encouraged to patronize local businesses when purchasing food and refreshments during the event.

This community-driven event is not officially sanctioned or endorsed by the City or any of the businesses in the Newton Town Centre area. This event is a positive, community building gathering, not a protest or act of civil disobedience. Inappropriate, disrespectful or unsafe behaviour will not be tolerated.

Park(ing) Day takes place on the third Friday in September each year. For more information on Park(ing) Day visit:
