PARK(ing) Day and bamboo in Sacramento, California

I had the good fortune to work with the local Sacramento of landscape architecture firm - Stantec on Park(ing) Day which was held this past Friday (September 20, 2013). PARK(ing) Day is an annual worldwide event where artists, designers and citizens transform metered parking spots into temporary public parks.

As of 2011 (they stopped counting), this international event was celebrated in 162 cities, 35 countries, and 6 continents.

So, my part in this event - I was asked to lend bamboo for the Stantec project in midtown Sacramento. To add more bamboo, to the very bamboo savvy Sacramento - I'm in...  all in.  Gotta help the landscape architecture firm that appreciates the beauty, utility and awesomeness of bamboo.

So, here is how the project turned out...

The Stantec Team.  Bamboo used included 'Mexican Weeping Bamboo', 'Weaver's Bamboo' and 'Big Leaf Bamboo.'

Strolling through the competing projects. The bamboo looks great!

Nice transformation of a midtown Sacramento parking spot!

Great job Stantec! Thanks for letting me adding bamboo to your awesome PARK(ing) Day project....
