Park-a-Park transforms a roll-off disposal bin into a community space that is both public art and radical landscape architecture. The structure serves as a mobile community hub for artist-led events, urban interventions, and general public use. Designed to fit in a single parking space, the park has, to date, been hosted by businesses, schools, a community center, and a residential plaza. This pilot project researches the potential of the “parklet” as an innovative response to a lack of green space in many urban environments. Future iterations of the project aim to address the mandates of Vancouver’s 2020 Greenest City Initiative.
