SAN DIEGO —

If you were downtown on Friday, you may have seen people parked where you'd expect to see cars.

"Parking day" is part of an effort to re-imagine public space and a world with more human connections. It's a holiday in which residents are encouraged to transform metered parking spaces into miniature, temporary parks.

The event is a partnership between Downtown San Diego and Lyft. 

The parking spaces are on the corner of B and Seventh streets. 

New 8’s Chris Porco went to check it out.
