WVU Landscape Architecture students take part in ‘Park(ing) Day’

Monongalia and Preston

Friday, landscape architecture students at WVU participated in ‘Park(ing) Day’.

This is a global movement to promote the importance of urban green spaces.

Students, designers, and community members transform metered parking spaces into temporary small parks. 

Friday, the members of the WVU chapter of the Student Society of Landscape Architects set up their green space on High Street between Tailpipes and Jimmy John’s. 

“A lot of people, a lot of positive comments. A ll of the good comments we’ve had, everybody said they like it. It helps break everything up, and kind of softens the view of the city,” said Donovan Price President SSLA.

This year’s design was shaped by the themes of sustainability, topography, and West Virginia.
