Park(ing) Day takes over 20th St
In September of 2014, 20th St W (between Avenue B and E) was celebrated as a sustainable, bike-friendly neighbourhood where community and business thrive. The day included parking stalls transformed into public parks, food trucks, bike valet, open forums, speakers and children’s activities. In a rapidly changing neighbourhood like Riversdale, Park(ing) Day is an especially effective experiment for a community to imagine the future. It's a way for Saskatonians from all over to experience walkable, bike-friendly streets. An active retail sector. Diverse uses of buildings. Here are some photos capturing the events of the day.
