Pop-up PARK(ing)

  • Sep 25, 2013 · 8:00 AM

NOTE THAT THIS EVENT HAS BEEN UPDATED: The bad weather predicted for Friday 20th has caused the sculpture trust to postpone to Wednesday 25th.

Wellington City Council is taking part in an international event where parking spaces are turned temporarily into parks. Yes, really. :-)

23 parking spaces will have temporary art installations in the central city between 8AM and 8PM.

This is a leaderless meetup. I'm just letting you know it's happening. No plans to get together, though feel free to see if anyone is interested in the comments.

More info on the day here (and a downloadable map):

      Damn. I didn't head out to look because of the weather, but was looking forward to seeing photos if it had gone ahead.

    Weather is meant to be pretty average tomorrow, does anyone know if this is still on, or if its being postponed again?

      Totally. I'm thinking of heading that way around 2pm and guess I'll be starting at #1 on the map: http://wellington.gov...­

    Just got a note from the Sculpture Trust that it's being postponed until Wednesday.
    "We have decided to postpone PARK(ing) Day until next Wednesday the 25th now as the weather forecast for tomorrow looks terrible, including high winds, which pose a bit of a health and safety risk."

      Thanks Greg, have updated. If you find a news link for that at some stage, can you link it for us?

      Neither WCC nor WST have updated their websites as of yet. I've just got two pieces of email to go on so far.
