PARK(ing) Day / Back to School Block Party in Washington Heights
Friday, 9/15 1-4pm
WHEELS SCHOOL STREET
W. 182nd St. between Amsterdam and Audubon Avenues
Join us for a community open street activation that transforms the entire block between the school buildings of WHEELS and I.S. 143 to demonstrate the need for a healthier, safer and more engaging streetscape for learning and to inspire the next generation of environmental stewards, landscape architects and planners.
W. 182nd Street will become a green learning street to promote community and environmental wellness to bring awareness of the elementary student-led initiative of a “Clean Air Green Corridor”. The event will set the stage as a School Street model, with a pop-up park and educational-related activities and games. This event is in collaboration with Washington Heights Expeditionary Learning School (WHEELS) and Futures Ignite.
