Parkland is the home of Pacific Lutheran University, (PLU) a liberal arts college with over 3,000 students enrolled.
Garfield Street, which lead directly into PLU, is lined with businesses, most of whom belong to the Garfield Street Business Association.
In addition, there is another organization, the Parkland Community Association, which is a grass-roots organization of Parkland residents and businesses who recognize that informed, involved citizens can improve a community’s livability and quality of life.
All of these groups are involved in the new DiscoverParkland.com blog/web/news site. There will be an official kickoff party for participants in the near future, but the site is already up and ready for you to check it out!
