A Perfect Day in the Park: University Park neighborhood council gives out trees, vegetables, skate board lessons

The North Area Neighborhood Development Council turns the Hoover Recreation Center parking lot into a skate park and green oasis this Saturday, October 23, from noon to 5pm.

The belated ParkingDayLA event, on the corner of Hoover and 25th Street, will celebrate the same spirit of creating community by leaving the cars behind. It's a reminder to us and our elected officials that the needs of the car should not be the top priority.

I am proud to say I was appointed to the neighborhood council as the USC staff designee in July and am just beginning to get the hang of it. But I know the issues we discuss on UniversityParkFamily.com inform my every vote when I am behind the cafeteria table as a member of the Neighborhood Council.

I will be at the Hoover parking lot giving out free shade trees, a free vegetable stand, as the kids enjoy a pop-up skate park and an opportunity to design a perfect parks. Many of the other members of the neighborhood council will be manning the table as well, so you can talk to any of us about what's going on.

Neighborhood Council President Shawn Simons, a member of UniversityParkFamily.com, requires all of us volunteer council members to join one committee and meet once a month. We also have to have a year-long project. That's in addition to the three-hour meetings on the First Thursday of the month at the MLK Park on 39th and Western. So this plan will help ensure this neighborhood council will have tangible outcomes.

The Park Day is the first of many I hope.
