Park(ing) Day 2021

12 Sep
A parklet on N. 24th St. built with pallets and blue rounded corrugated aluminum. Two people are seated on the pallet benches, chatting in what was a parking spot for a car, turned into a gathering spot for the neighborhood.
Inspiration for the next parklet on Park(ing) Day!

Busy this Friday morning? Join us for the reveal of Mode Shift Omaha’s new parklet, temporarily installed for Park(ing) Day, at 1234 S. 13th Street, this coming Friday, September 17th from 9:00am-5:00pm. We’ll be there for our monthly Coffee Chat at 9:00am, with coffee from Archetype just down the block.

The concept is simple: take a parking spot in front of the Greenhouse and turn it into a social gathering spot, which also acts as a traffic calming device. There will be seating, plants, and information on the benefits of these types of installations. Hope to see you there!

If you’re unable to join us that morning, the installation will be up until 5:00pm that night. Thanks to Spin, Better Block, and the folks with Park(ing) Day for a mini-grant that made this possible.

A round graphic with a teal background and crosswalk that says, "Walk With Us" with an orange hand and car underneath similar to the light from a real crossing signal. Next to that round graphic, the words "Aksarben Saturday, Sept 18th 10am, Legend Coffee 5207 Leavenworth St." are in black.

If you’re busy Friday but want to hang with Mode Shifters on Saturday, we have another event involving coffee and community. Meet us at 10:00am at Legend Coffee on 52nd & Leavenworth for another Walk With Us event, this time focused on the sidewalk obstruction due to a poorly placed Verizon pole. We’ll gather to grab coffee (to go), and then walk as a group to the pole to check out the new sidewalk that has finally been poured. We’ll also hear from City Councilor Danny Begley about the latest with this issue and how to prevent it from happening again.
