Park(ing) Day is an international event where metered parking spaces are transformed into temporary public parks. Collaborative volunteers designed and built a climbable dome and a xylophone from used tires and PVC pipes. The overarching concept was to take materials donated by the Philly Urban Creators Life Do Grow urban farm, assemble them for a day of fun, and then give the playful structures to the farm
