Want to hang out at a pop-up park? yea, me too

 

Urban dwellers in big cities are seeing a twist on green parks in their cities. Pop-up parks are sprouting up to add whimsy and style to concrete jungles. Dwell mag recently profiled the “pavement-to-parks” movement and the notion of creating unique and interesting spaces right on streets, or “being playful with the streets”. I love this idea and how immediate a reaction is when stumbling upon an instant park – joy! While the movement is rapidly catching on (30 pop-up parks are on the move now), Dwell showcased 3 city pop-up parks that are part art installation, part public space and all fun – Picnurbia, Better Block Project and The Porch. Click here to check out more details, see the parks and see if one is coming to a city near you soon.
