Park(ing) Day returns, with creative parklets sprouting downtown
If you’re walking near Capitol Mall on the morning of Sept. 16, you might notice a rose garden that seemingly grew up overnight alongside a miniature music festival stage, a mod art bar and a lounge area filled with chairs made of logs beside a wall resembling a beehive.
These whimsical installations are part of Sacramento United Park(ing) Day—a pop-up event that will transform parking spaces in front of the State Capitol between 9th and 10th streets into temporary parklets.

If you missed parking day last year, don't miss this year's event! 14 local groups will convert parking spaces along 9th and 10th into mini parklets where the public can peruse and enjoy them. The event will take place on September 16th from 9am to 7pm at the Capitol Mall traffic circle in front of the State Capitol building.
