REPRO FREE Putting the Park back into Parking Spaces in Clonakilty were Cllr. Padraig O’Sullivan, Mayor of the County of Cork; Niall Healy, Director of Services Cork County Council; Tom O’Donovan of the Clonakilty Bike Scheme and musician Adam McGrath from New Zealand as mini parks popped up in parking spaces across the county for the day, co-ordinated by Cork County Council and Cork Transport and Mobility Forum and supported by Healthy Ireland and the Cork Age Friendly Programme, on Friday as part of International Park(ing) Day. Picture. John Allen Media Release 19/09/2019 Putting the Park back into Parking Spaces If you were out and about on Friday you may have happened across one of the unique mini- parks, just a little larger than your average car, that were popping up in parking spaces on streets across the County. Some were hard to miss! In Fermoy a magical gnome themed, ‘Gnomansland’ popped up on Main Street while Clonakilty’s Pearse Street sported a mini bike-themed park and Cobh spontaneously grew a garden allotment on the street outside SeaSalt Café. These were just some of the unique transformations from parking space to temporary public parklets happening on Friday 20th September. The concept of putting a tiny park inside a parking space originated in San Francisco in 2005 and has grown into a worldwide movement known as International Park(ing) Day that falls on the third Friday in September every year. Park(ing) Day in County Cork is coordinated by Cork Transport and Mobility Forum and Cork County Council and is supported by Healthy Ireland and the Cork Age Friendly Programme. It facilitates artists, businesses and citizens to get creative in reimagining public space and car parking spots in our towns. The Mayor of the County of Cork, Cllr Christopher O’Sullivan praised the creativity on display in Cobh, Clonakilty, Fermoy and Mitchelstown and other places for Park(ing) Day. “These parklets are wonderfully creative examples of people rethinking and repurposing spaces, that we take for granted as having only one function, and giving them an entirely new meaning. It opens up conversations about urban spaces and how we use them and is part of a broader discussion of town centres being designed principally for people and not just cars and of course the need to change over to more sustainable transport modes.”
