Park(ing) Day 2016

On September 16, 2016, HBB staff collaboratively designed and constructed a colorful and interactive parklet to fit in two parking stalls outside our office. Visitors passed through the space all day as part of PARK(ing) Day. At our temporary park, visitors interacted with the design by taking pictures at our “peek-a-boo panels”. The design also included outdoor, movable furniture where visitors had brief meetings, enjoyed lunch, and watched as wind from traffic along Westlake Avenue North spun dozens of pinwheels. Sedums and potted perennials softened the space with a final splash of color and texture. We are proud to say that, once again, all materials in our design were donated, composted, or recycled after they had their time in the sun.
