We need volunteers for National Park(ing) Day!

Unpaving Paradise needs your help! Our first major outreach event, National Park(ing) Day, is coming up on Friday, September 19th - we'll be setting up a mini-park for the day in front of the Vivace espresso stand on Broadway near Thomas St.

We need folks to give us a hand setting up the park, sitting at the park during the day giving out information and flyers, and taking down the park at the end of the day. Set-up will be between about 8 and 9am and take down will be around 6 or 7 and will take about an hour as well.

We also need help putting up flyers advertising the event. The flyers need to go up ASAP, so please email us right away if you want to help.

Please email unpaving.paradise@gmail.com and sign up!

I've seen this mentioned a few times, and I'm curious. Here it says: "we'll be setting up a mini-park for the day in front of the Vivace espresso stand on Broadway near Thomas St."

Thats the sidewalk, yes?

Otherplaces I've heard "in the parking lot by Vivace", which is WaMu's.

I'm just curious 1) which place the park will occur in, and 2) if this is being done as a geurilla affair, or with consent / permit of the Cap Hill Landed Gentry / City.

I'll come by and see. :)

Sorry I didn't get the chance to reply before. The park was on the street in a parking space (hence National Park(ing) Day) and it was done with the consent of the city, as were all the other parking parks on September 19th.
