Park(ing) Day Reimagines Downtown Public Spaces

Downtown: On The Go! is calling all businesses, organizations, artists, and persons interested in lively public space. Friday, September 21st 2018 is Park(ing) Day, a global event in which parking spots temporarily become public parks.

Spaceworks Tacoma is a proud sponsor of Tacoma Park(ing) Day 2018.
