Campus celebrates PARK(ing) Dayby Alexandra Valnoski Sep. 25, 2018, 3:27 PM
Hundreds of students, faculty, staff and community members enjoyed Vanderbilt’s “parklet” during last week’s PARK(ing) Day 2018.
Hosted by the Division of Administration and supported by the Nashville Civic Design Center, 18 parking spaces located at the corner of Broadway and 20th Avenue were transformed into a temporary park highlighting sustainable features and materials for the community to enjoy.
Emphasizing aspects of FutureVU and its guiding principles, the park included local and sustainable features such as a solar panel demonstration, an umbrella installation using bamboo from campus, a succulent garden, and a water feature using captured storm water.
Vote for Vanderbilt to win the “People’s Choice Award” by visiting the Nashville Civic Design Facebook page and “liking” the photo of Vanderbilt’s park.
Vanderbilt’s participation in PARK(ing) Day is part of its pop-up event series held on campus to activate outdoor spaces.
