Welcome to the Parkville Living Center

The Parkville Living Center (PLC) is a space created to facilitate community. We walk with our community through all the situations that life presents. We recognize that love grows the more you give it away. We are creating a space for Parkville to be in community – to explore all that life has to offer, together.

A community has needs, both to give as well as to receive.

The Vision

With your help we are creating a new type of community center, in the heart of Parkville. Hosted by Parkville Presbyterian Church, the Parkville Living Center is a place where building relationship is our guiding principle. We invite anyone to come and share in the journey that is life. We hold space to meet our community needs where they are, we bring our experiences and the collective experiences of our community to guide us and to help us grow, together. Out of this personal engagement comes events, activities and other expressions of community, growth, peace and joy.

Here we will tell some of those stories, and we invite you to tell YOUR stories. For more information or to tell your stories, please contact the Parkville Living Center.

The origins of Parkville Days

I have lived in Parkville for many years now, celebrating our historic downtown area, the river, the parks and of course Parkville Days. It never really occurred to me to look up the history of Parkville Days, as I just assumed a small river trading town simply always had a carnival-type event. This is not a story of someone setting off to research a carnival, rather it is the story of how amazing things start, both in terms of art but also in terms of tradition.
