Some parking spots in downtown Tulsa were blocked starting Friday morning and turned into little miniature parks.

Organizers were to take up several parking spots on Boston between 3rd Street and 6th Street.

More than a dozen different organizations are involved in Tulsa Parking Day, and they transformed the parking spaces into pop-up parks.

Some of the displays were be designed by architecture firms and tend to be more complex; while, others are as simple as creating a dog park.

Maggie Hoey, TYPros Executive Director said "If you could re-imagine downtown for a day, what would you include in that spot and how would you get other people to help out and buy into that idea?"

Tulsa Parking Day is from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
