PARKing Day in Kensington was a colourful and interactive success! Pedestrians interacted with many explorative exhibits in parking stalls all along Kensington Road NW.

Artists, architects, neighbours, City departments and community groups explored how public spaces could be used and created in bright and interactive displays.

Social seating areas and up-cycled materials welcomed visitors to this stall.

ISL Architects brought a huge paint-by-numbers photo of Kensington for people to paint. 

City of Calgary engagement display on public gardens and bees. The bee sculptures could be won and City staff were handing out free wildflower packages.

The City Shaping Team is busy at work, creating a plan to pollinate public spaces in Calgary. #CityShapingYYC


Large teeter-totter with a best-time score board, the kids were having a blast trying to find the sweet spot for balance.

Drawings on display of design concept street furniture designed by UofA students for use public realm areas.

Everything in the “Alice in Dumpsterland” was up-cycled and made out of found items. The makers want to challenge us all to make art and public spaces out of upcycled items! Brilliant idea.
