ParknPool's WVRPA Tradeshow Booth

“I was very excited to attend my first tradeshow since being employed with ParknPool, West Virginia, as well as other surrounding states, is a beautiful state with a lot of parks and recreational areas that deserve to be preserved.

On Wednesday, October 3, 2012, ParknPool traveled to the Blackwater Falls Conference Center in Davis, West Virginia to attend the 40th Annual West Virginia Recreation and Parks Association (WVRPA) Conference. ParknPool became a member of the WVRPA in 2005 when moving their office from Florida to Virginia, and 2012 marked the third year in which they have attended the annual conference.

In addition to the various exhibitors alongside ParknPool, several educational sessions were held focusing on park development, funding, aquatics, programming and much more. These sessions included discussions on how to revive a dormant park system, incorporating summer feeding into an existing park program, and how ADA compliance relates to parks and recreation.

The West Virginia Recreation and Parks Association shares ParknPool’s passion in being actively concerned with recreation, parks, therapeutic recreation, conservation and environmental education, programs and issues. They strive to stimulate and promote a widening interest in recreation in local communities, and statewide, through the conservation and development of the resources of the state of West Virginia. In addition they endeavor to promote principles and standards for the improvement of recreational services and to encourage study and research in professional relations.

ParknPool, the leading online distributor of commercial outdoor furniture and site amenities such as picnic tables, trash receptacles, park benches, bleachers and playgrounds, enjoys attending several parks and recreation based trade shows throughout the year. “I was very excited to attend my first tradeshow since being employed with ParknPool,” explained Gil Ayres, ParknPool Account Manager, “West Virginia, as well as other surrounding states, is a beautiful state with a lot of parks and recreational areas that deserve to be preserved.” ParknPool will also be attending the NRPA (National Recreation and Parks Association) tradeshow to be held October 16-18 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California.
