City of Cambridge PARK(ing) Day Celebration Sept. 21
Mayor Davis enjoys a fresh cup of Cambridge water with a
customer at her oasis, redesigned parking spot in front of
Cambridge City Hall.
On Friday, Sept. 21, the City is coordinating with community partners to present 18 PARK(ing) Spots, in honor of International PARK(ing) Day, a project that transforms metered parking spaces into temporary public places.
The mission of PARK(ing) Day is to call attention to the need for more urban open space, to generate critical debate around how public space is created and allocated, and to improve the quality of urban human habitat … at least until the meter runs out!
Mayor Henrietta Davis will participate in Cambridge’s PARK(ing) Day by transforming a parking space into an outdoor water bar, serving Cambridge Tap Water to passers-by.
“PARK(ing) Day is a wonderful way to showcase the sustainability goals of our City, and I’m delighted to use this opportunity to highlight and promote Cambridge Tap Water," said Davis. "Our drinking water in Cambridge is among the best in the state of Massachusetts and for that matter, in the country.”
