Articles & Videos on Pavement to Parks

Pavement to Parks projects repurpose parking spots, lanes or other portions of streets to create open public space.  They may involve street painting, putting out potted plants and bringing out tables, chairs, awnings, etc. for people to congregate.

For Pavement to Parks, this video by Streetfilms tells you what it’s all about (at least from a San Francisco point-of-view.  It’s up to us to interpret the concept for L.A.!).  For more information, visit the SF Pavement to Parks website.

On the East Coast, find out how converting pavement into a public plaza actually helped traffic flow!  Or as Streetfilms puts it, Carmaggeddon did not happen as some naysayers had feared.
