If summer is ending a little too soon for you, get out your hula hoops and chalk and head to Park(ing) Day at Indiana University South Bend on Thursday.
For one day, students from the Indiana University South Bend's Sustainability and Wellness Club transformed one parking spot on campus into a temporary public park.
There will be food and drink, .and outdoor games such as four square, and jump rope.
Their goal is to encourage more urban open space to be used for more than just parking.
“When people come here and they park, they go inside and forget about their cars all day,” said Chris Baker, of the Sustainability and Wellness Club. “Where as, we could use these spaces. And this is a perfect example of that. We're using this space for a recreational activity.”
Parking day is from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. in a parking spot on the north side of the faculty lot, between the Student Activities Center and Greenlawn Hall.
