WILMINGTON – Several local organizations took over metered parking spots in downtown Wilmington on Friday to celebrate PARK(ing) Day. The international event seeks to highlight the need for urban green space through pop-up displays of landscaping, games and other things that fit within the confines of a parking spot.

Some of the groups that created displays included the New Hanover County Library, downtown business Outdoor Equipped, Feast Down East, the Historic Wilmington Foundation and the Ability Garden at the New Hanover County Arboretum. The event was sponsored by Wilmington Downtown Inc.
