Groups that want more nature in our asphalt covered cities will convert metered parking spots to pop up parks for one day – Friday – in the Bay Area. Walnut Creek will be included in the national Park(ing) Day event for the first time with three spaces on Locust Street getting a makeover for four hours. 

The Greenbelt Alliance and Save Mount Diablo are taking part in the Walnut Creek event. There also are events in Oakland, San Jose, San Francisco, and Santa Rosa. Read a story here.
