WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Wilmington Downtown Inc. hosted PARK(ing) Day in the parking spaces of downtown Wilmington. PARK(ing) Day was held in an effort to promote the need for a public park downtown. 

Four spaces filled Front and Market Street each with a different theme. The Children's Museum, Cape Fear Academy, Feast Down East and a number of local fitness demonstrated how a park would fit into the city.

The Dream Committee who organized the event, say they plan to propose to build a park near the broken fountain on Water Street. 

The Dream Committee will take the feedback from PARK(ing) day and bring the results to the Wilmington City Council, who is already in support of the project.
