Thanks to everyone who stopped by our mini-park outside of the DXF Welcome Center today! We converted a parking space into a mini public space for Park(ing) Day, an annual worldwide event where artists, designers and citizens transform metered parking spots into temporary public parks. Also, check out the photos from our friends at Wayne State University and Hamilton-Anderson who made park installations today.
