Park(ing) Day, this year on September 16, is an international event where parking stalls are transformed into temporary public parks. CITYlab collaborated with local artist Chelsea Boos, to reserve 20 stalls on 101A Avenue between 96 and 97 Street. The stalls became parklets, performance venues, and interactive displays.
