Día de calle verde

Amsterdam & Audubon 1:00-4:00 PM

The Green Corridor 182 Park(ing) Day activation 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 an Open Street model, with a pop-up park and educational related activities and games.

If you would like to participate at any level – from securing materials, setting up, facilitating participatory activities or just being involved in the event on the day of, please sign up!

PARK(ing) Day is an annual international event where residents, artists and activists collaborate to temporarily transform curbside parking spots into public spaces. Activations often take the form of creating temporary parklets for community use and providing opportunities for art and civic engagement. The mission of these happenings is to call attention to the importance of urban open space and generate a dialogue about the benefits of public green space to elevate the health and quality of urban life for the surrounding neighborhood.
