The event creator says
Join your fellow park-lovers on Memorial Day for a picnic on the Occupied Greensward. Bring your friends and family, blankets, picnic baskets, Frisbees, hula hoops, and balls. Spend your holiday in the grass with friends old and new.

Our intention is to fill the Occupied Greensward with peaceful park activities so no cars will be able to park on the grass that day. The more people we have involved, the more successful we will be in making the statement that the park is for people, not cars. If you are uncomfortable breaching the barricades, join us anyway on the Free/Unoccuiped Greensward!

Please remember to be respectful of both other people and the beautiful green space.
