WORLDWIDE EFFORT HIGHLIGHTING NEED FOR PUBLIC PARK SPACE
PARK(ing) Day Events
Planned at Lenox Square, Georgia Tech
ATLANTA – The
Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) is a proud participant of
PARK(ing) Day activities in Buckhead and Midtown this Friday, Sept. 17. This
worldwide event temporarily transforms parking spaces into public parks or
displays of art and community to call attention to how public space is created
As part of Livable
Buckhead’s PARK(ing) Day, MARTA will transform three parking spaces at Lenox
Square to highlight several of its non-transit-related programs that make use
of public space such as StationSoccer, Fresh MARTA Markets, and MARTA’s public
art program, Artbound. The engaging green space will feature live music, chalk
art, fresh produce, and the opportunity to test your soccer skills.
