PARK(ing) Day - Friday, September 21, 2012 10am-6pm, in front of Cardinal Towne The University of Louisville's temporary mini-park was created in parking spaces on Cardinal Blvd. between 3rd & 4th St. in Louisville, Kentucky. PARK(ing) Day is an annual worldwide event in which artists, designers and citizens transform metered parking spots into temporary public parks. UofL collaborated with several other groups to transform Louisville parking spaces into parklets in order to draw attention to how we use our public space and the importance of ending the violence on our streets caused by motor vehicles. Hundreds of people are killed and injured by cars on Louisville's streets each year. Nationally, 32,310 people were killed on our roadways last year. It doesn't have to be this way. UofL's Sustainability Council wants to help stop by the violence on our streets by raising awareness about safer streets with fewer cars and slower traffic!
