When I think of Park(ing) Day, I think of a reclamation of the awareness of public space and the definition of public space. Public space is for everyone, one should not have to own a car to enjoy more public space. People are constantly hustling in the city, moving about as quickly as possible and the car may seem like a good way to get around, however in rush hour the car only slows people down and takes up huge amounts of space. I really liked the suggestion that the woman proposed the other day, "maybe take public transit one day a week if you always drive," now if thats feasible for those who don't live too far or have too much to carry, then I think they could find ways to uses their transit time wisely, take a load of the environment, and open up space. The first word I chose is the word Play because in my opinion the best way to enjoy public space is to play, meaning for recreational or leisurely activities. The second word I chose was preserve, mean what is public must stay public as well as preserving the environment, this could be using recycled goods as well as local landscaping. The third word I chose was Public, this is because it should be for everyone, car owner or not. Public space must be a civic place.
