This one-day event temporarily transforms literal parking spaces into parklets, creative spaces, and collaborative spaces to explore what is missing from our downtowns and neighborhoods. The first PARK(ing) Day event will primarily be held in new Alley Park (located on Trenton and Natchitoches Street) in downtown West Monroe.
