Spontaneous places and events

Here's a great example why Surfside Park is THE park in Mound, MN. The evening of the terrible shootings in Aurora, CO, a young local gentleman in grief needed to connect with people instead of sitting at home, watching the news.

So he puts the word out, and organizes a prayer vigil, which draws LOTS of people, and even some local TV coverage...

As we said before, Surfside has a lot of great things going for it... including it's highly visible location, it's amenities, and the lake.

But what if you were late for a spontaneous event like this? Would you still go?

The City of Mound can make this a better place, a more accessible place, if on street parking were allowed.
