365 Things to Do in Memphis #257: Park(ing) Day

Posted by Holly Whitfield | September 17th 2012 1710 0

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.

Park(ing) Day, Memphis, Tenn.

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.

Go there:

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.
