PARK(ing) Day is an annual global re-visioning of urban public space that was developed in 2005. The event encourages community members, small businesses, cultural institutions, students and more to transform metered parking spaces into temporary park-lets. It’s purpose is to celebrate public spaces in a way that everyone can enjoy.
This year, Downtown Bridgeport will participate in PARK(ing) Day on Friday, September 20, 2019 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Come check out spaces activated by The Discovery Museum and Planetarium, Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo, The Barnum Museum, and others along Main Street outside of Funchal Americana Buffet and Bean N Batter, and on Fairfield Avenue at Trattoria ‘A Vucchella!
Thank you to the friends and partners who helped put this day together! Antinozzi Associates, CiTY LiGhTs Gallery, Art Simplicated, FCBuzz Events, Courtney George, and City of Bridgeport.
