Can a parking space be anything other than a place for cars? Letís find out! Show your LOVE of Clearwater by joining us for Reclaim Your Space 2013.

Reclaim Your Space 2013 is an event where artists, designers and citizens transform metered parking spaces into temporary public parks. On Thursday, November 7, 2013 Downtown Clearwater will see several of its metered parking spaces along Cleveland Street transformed for a day into mini-parks. This one-day event is a "Love Note" from the City to its residents, and is part of the "For the Love of Clearwater" series of events in part sponsored by the Clearwater Downtown Partnership. Reclaim Your Space 2013 is based on National PARK(ing) Day, as well as other similar events held in Orlando, Ithaca, and Sacramento.

For those interested in installing a mini-park for a day as part of Reclaim Your Space 2013, applications are due by Friday, September 27, 2013. All mini-parks must be designed to promote love of Clearwater, recreation, green living, alternative transportation, or some combination there-of. Selected applicants will be notified by October 18, 2013.
