UHC’s Lee Bouchard chats with a visitor at UHC’s Parking Day park. Emily Lake (barely visible through the foliage) catches up on some zzz’s on the yoga mat.

UHC joined groups from across the globe PARKing Day in an annual, one-day, global event where artists, activists, and citizens collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spots into “PARKing” spaces: temporary public parks.
Thanks to all those folks - pedestrians, bikers, and even automobile drivers - who just said hello in passing or who stopped by to sit with us in our temporary park in front of Cafe Latakia at the intersection of Broadway and Belmont in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood.
