PGA Celebrates 2014 PARKing Day With a “Surf’s Up” Theme

Continuing an annual tradition, PGA staff planned and executed this year’s PARKing day event. For several years, PGA has celebrated PARKing day by designing and constructing a mini parklet in one parking space in front of our downtown office. This year’s event involved importing bags of sand, a surf backdrop, a surfboard and wetsuit-clad Joe Marwell, a “muscle man” cutout for posed photos, Beach Boys background music, and even beach toys for passing toddlers. At lunchtime, we barbequed hotdogs and lounged on beach chairs while explaining the purpose of PARKing Day – to demonstrate that there are better ways to utilize our land than paving it for parking.
