Park(ing) Day 2020: a glimpse of a greener, people friendly Elizabeth Street
On Friday 18 September, Elizabeth Street was transformed with number of pop-up parklets hosted by several of Midtown businesses to celebrate Park(ing) Day. Supported by the City of Hobart and delivered locally by the Tasmanian Young Planners, Park(ing) Day encourages people to see public spaces from a different angle, and their potential as a place for people to dwell rather than for cars. Starting in San Francisco in 2005, PARK(ing) Day is now celebrated in more than 160 cities. The successful event provided an glimpse of what a more greener, vibrant, active and inclusive people-focused Elizabeth street could look like in the future.
