PARK(ing) Day 2017

What is PARK(ing) Day?

The Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) is proud to be part of PARK(ing) Day, which will be held this year on Friday, September 15, 2017.

PARK(ing) Day is an annual, global event that gives residents, businesses and organizations an opportunity to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into fun, parklike spots that stimulate conversations about how we use our urban landscape. We hope PARK(ing) Day will encourage people to rethink their transportation choices and support infrastructure that is more transit-oriented, bikeable and walkable.
