P A R K S P A C E

Ongoing

P A R K S P A C E is an intervention that helps visualize social distancing guidelines in Austin’s parks and green spaces. As Austinites step carefully back out of their homes, we need to shift the ways we move through and interact in public spaces. To help with this transition, P A R K S P A C E provides a creative wayfinding system to encourage safe practices for our community.
