PARK (ing) DAY

Park(ing) Day is an international event designed to celebrate everyday choices for sustainable mobility and to advocate for favorable urban amenities by taking over a parking spot. Saint-Raymond, Benny, Westhaven and Walkley held their own version of parking day from coffee shops to hot dog stands to art and craft stations to a game of dominos! All gatherings reflect of what residents wanted to see more of in the neighborhood.
