Cal Poly grad students, clockwise from top, David Eng, Allen Lu, Cindy Ma and Anais Mallinge, enjoy their transformed parking space Friday in the Santa Barbara Bank & Trust parking lot in San Luis Obispo.

The park is part of a worldwide annual event called PARK(ing) Day, meant to challenge people to rethink the way streets and parking are used in urban settings.

Last year, there were more than 800 “park” installations in more than 180 cities in 30 countries.
