Among other things, today is Park(ing) Day, that annual event where people reclaim parking spaces for public (uh, non-parking) use. Above is the “Meditation Garden” at North 6th and Bedford. Other local attractions are the “Manhattan Avenue Park” at Driggs and Manhattan; the “Buckminster Fuller Park” at North 10th and Bedford; and the “Extended Chill Space Garden” at North 5th and Bedford.

No word on whether or not there are any pirate-themed park(ing) spaces.
