365 Things to Do in Memphis #257: Park(ing) Day
On Friday, Sept. 21, people all over the world will turn parking spaces into temporary public parks as part of Park(ing) Day. Assignment #257 in the 365 Things to Do in Memphis is to hang out in our local (tiny) parks.
In Memphis, 16 groups are on board to turn the metered parking spaces on Peabody between Front and Second into miniature parks. Last year, during Memphis' first Park(ing) Day, there was a seesaw made of old car parts, a human library and a miniature roller derby track. This year, you can look forward to humans as musical instruments, a wee tennis court, a roller disco opera, Jenga and more.
Friday, Sept. 21, 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Peabody between Front and Second St.,
Downtown Memphis, Tenn.
