Park for a Day?

According to the Philadelphia Park‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎(ing)‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎ Day 2012 map, Kate Farquhar & Ann Marie Schneider will be converting a parking space here at 329 North 11th Street into a miniature park on September 21, 2012:

The number of parks throughout Philadelphia increases dramatically each year on the second Friday in September, when activists, artists, architects, and other citizens transform metered parking spaces into temporary public parks. Known as Park(ing) Day, this annual event re-imagines the possibilities of 170 square feet of public space.  The event celebrates parks and other public spaces in cities across the country, and raises awareness of the need for more pedestrian-friendly spaces in our urban areas.
