Any clue what "parking the grounds" means?
Parking the grounds means continuing the implementation of the park plan created by the legendary Fredrick Law Olmsted Jr., who was hired to create the landscape architecture vision for McMillan Park. For perspective, this single year budget (of which there were many) for McMillan Park landscaping/parking of $8,000.00 equates to approximately $190,000 today.
Ah. I had never heard that phrase. Parking the car, parking with your girl, parking your butt are phrases I know. Thanks.
