Besides a small mishap with the “K” that was quickly resolved, Standard’s LOCAL PARK design was a huge hit on Park(ing) Day LA.
No kid was immune to the call of the sandboxes. That includes us.
Some even brought their own beach toys!
Our host, LOCAL owner Jason Michaud, was so smitten with the topiary statement, rumor has it that the park might just be parking semi-permanently at LOCAL in the very near future.
Among our many visitors, our friend Stephen Box – the mayor of Park(ing) Day LA himself – stopped by to say hello. Kill Radioalso sat down in our beach chairs for a bit and did a quick interview with Silvia and Jeff. You can catch their film of Park(ing) Day LA at the Bike Oven this month. And Mike Manalo, a media design researcher at Art Center took these amazing photos as he went on Park(ing) Day LA walkabout throughout the city.
If you missed it, don’t worry. LOCAL PARK will be making an encore appearance (along with other Parking Day LA installations) at the ULI Live Conference, October 26-28 at the LA Convention Center as part of The Square, a showcase of place-making, LA-style, curated by Frances Anderton.

Huge thanks to Silvia and Jeff and entire Standard team (especially Alex and Kazu)! The entire day went off without a hitch. And only one of us got a parking ticket!
