at the Torres Companies Building
Join us this Friday, September 16th at 5PM, for Happy Hour in the “park” as we participate in the worldwide event – Park(ing) Day where Jana Foods will be giving out free samples of our delicious cheese. You can find us in front of the Torres Companies in Coral Gables, FL.
PARK(ing) Day is an annual worldwide event where artists, designers, companies and citizens transform metered parking spots into temporary public parks.
The project began in 2005 when Rebar, a San Francisco art and design studio, converted a single metered parking space into a temporary public park in downtown San Francisco. Since 2005, PARK(ing) Day has evolved into a global movement, with organizations and individuals (operating independently of Rebar but following an established set of guidelines) creating new forms of temporary public space in urban contexts around the world.
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!
