RESCHEDULED: MARTA TO PARTICIPATE IN WORLDWIDE EFFORT HIGHLIGHTING NEED FOR PUBLIC PARK SPACE
PARK(ing) Day Event Planned at Lenox Square

 

ATLANTA – The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) is a proud participant of PARK(ing) Day activities in Buckhead that have been RESCHEDULED for Friday, Oct. 1. This worldwide event temporarily transforms parking spaces into public parks or displays of art and community to call attention to how public space is created and allocated. 

As part of Livable Buckhead’s PARK(ing) Day, MARTA will transform three parking spaces at Lenox Square to highlight several of its non-transit-related programs that make use of public space such as StationSoccer, Fresh MARTA Markets, and MARTA’s public art program, Artbound. The engaging green space will feature live music,  fresh produce, and the opportunity to test your soccer skills.

What:             Livable Buckhead PARK(ing) Day           

When:             Friday, Oct. 1

            11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
