Just in case you missed Parking Day last Friday, we've got a recap of the event just for you! Parking Day is an annual international event that promotes and celebrates the importance of green space in cities and communities. To show support for green space and parks, a parking spot is taken over and transformed into a mini-park for the day. Here in Hamilton County we had 8 Great mini-parks that celebrated the 4,000 acres of park in the county!
The Hamilton County Convention and Visitors Bureau had a travel-themed space complete with brochures. Clay Terrace hosted the mini-park for Hamilton County Parks and Recreation that was put together by Americorps NCCC volunteers. Westfield and Arcadia both had cozy mini-parks with games and decorations for visitors to enjoy. Downtown Noblesville was graced with two mini-parks. One art inspired space at the Nickel Plate Arts headquarters and one space right on the historic square where Noblesville Parks had games and even wi-fi set up! Conner Prairie has a Civil War camp inspired mini-park where a soldier in uniform brewed up coffee the 1860's way for visitors to try. Lastly, Fishers Parks laid down sod for a very realistic mini-park complete with a tent and games! For photos of each mini-park, check out our Facebook photo album!
We're fortunate to have such a great amount of green space, trails, and parks for visitors to enjoy. And although Parking Day is over, it's not too late to plan your outdoor adventure in Hamilton County to enjoy our 4,000 acres of park space!
