World's Park(ing) day in Sofia

Today is Park(ing) Day 2011! Started in 2005, this international event repurposes parking spaces to turn them into mini parks. Oakland is celebrating with 13 parklets, as well as San Jose, Walnut Creek, and Santa Rosa. Check out the map to find the parklet nearest you! The parklet featured above is from Sofia, Bulgaria.
