PARK(ing) DAY

Friday was  PARK(ing) Day in downtown Hartford,  an international movement to reclaim metered parking spaces and transform them into tiny, temporary parks. Hartford has always had their share of artists and goofy people and this was a perfect opportunity to show those qualities off.

 Three artist friends claimed a parking spot on Trumbull Street in front of the XL Center and transformed it into a "mini" park with tiny picnic tables and sod. In photo, Gil Scullion of Middletown, right, prepares to use his power leaf blower to clean up the park while Michael Thomas of New Britain, left, picks up trash and David Borawski of Hartford, center,  waits to rake.
