Park(ing) Day Chattanooga

Almost time to clear the way for the return of Park(ing) Day in downtown Chattanooga.

Next Friday, parking spaces will be reclaimed, reimagined and repurposed as “parklets” for people on Broad Street between 4th Street and Aquarium Way.

Chattanooga is one of several cities participating in Park(ing) Day.

Eric Myers is executive director of Chattanooga Design Studio.

Marcus Ellsworth is programs manager at River City Company.
