PARK(ing) Day was awesome
Ritual Cafe double wide park, Canon Digital Rebel XTi
Sasha and I started out on our bicycles from Ritual Cafe where there was a double wide PARK complete with a bocce ball game.
The best part of the day though was escorting the PARKcycle by bicycle throughout the city. It was a big adventure moving through traffic but so much fun.
We only got pulled over a few times!
Mayor Gavin Newsom showed up to take some pics with the PARKcycle (Sasha made a great PARK(ing) day photo set that includes this)
All in all there were 180 PARKs built for PARK(ing) Day in 47 cities worldwide.

What a great idea! I so want in on this next year.
SO COOL!!!!! YAY for Parking Day!
This looks so great! I LOVE the tree in the middle of the ParkCycle. We did one too, in South Los Angeles ... one little girl cried when she had to go home at the end of the day, she wanted to play in the 'park' and not have it go away.
Missed it this year and I am grieving! It looks so perfect. Definitely next year. Great, great idea!
Hey, this is SO AWESOME! Congratulations on a job very well done. Did Ben enjoy it?
Our Park in Vilnius didn't work out. It was just lame. Next time, we'll try harder and do better.
This looks absolutely awesome!!! The parkcycle looks SO good. Is that a license plate on the back?? That must have been fun to apply for ("no, it's not a car. it's a park... on wheels, yes"). Not sure if anything happened in Australia.
Checked out your friend Sasha's photos, and the Mayor looks a little...slick. He could do with less product in his hair. Hope he is half decent politically.
that has to be the most brilliant and funniest thing i've ever seen. I LOVE IT!
Success! :-) Next time I want to join! I love the guy in the first picture with his shoes off and with a cappuccino at hand. That looks awesome!
fabulous I love love 'protests' which are positive. I must take up guerilla gardening...
This is such a great idea! Looks like it was a success.
Rebar ROCKS! Congrats on it being such a great success!
AWESOME! Congrats on a great success! Hopefully the next one will be even bigger!
I think this initiative is totally awesome! I hope we can have Park (ing) Day extend to the Dominican Republic next year...Keep up the excellent work guys, you totally rock!
So cool! I'm confused about which one is the mayor though, all the folks in that photo look very young and funcky. Do you have a very young and funky mayor? Cool.
