On Thursday, Park Lane’s shop keepers mounted the results of a community art project that involved two of Kirkland’s elementary schools. Those results—in the form of two 20-foot vinyl banners donated by FastSigns of Kirkland—are now on the construction fence surrounding Park Lane. They feature the artistic and verbal responses of Ben Franklin’s kindergarteners to reimagine a city, and the responses of Peter Kirk’s second graders to reimagine a street.

Park Lane shops and restaurants are open during the construction along Park Lane. While visiting your favorite shop, be sure to look for the kids' artwork.
