Park(ing) Day

Landscape design students created two pop-up parks along College Street as part of an international event, Park(ing) Day ( For one day only, the parklets successfully challenged people’s every-day perceptions of public space. We could not have asked for a more beautiful fall day! The objectives for this class project, which was part of the Advanced Landscape Design studio (HORT 432), were for students to collaborate in developing a shared design idea, work within budget and time constraints, physically construct the parklet, and assess the user experience and implementation of their design intent.
