WORST DESIGN AWARD

In the category of signage, I’m nominating the Plano Parks & Recreation Department. Anybody who has spent time craning his neck looking for the right soccer field at Russell Creek Park, which I have had the pleasure of doing several hundred times, will know what I’m talking about. The big signs direct you to the “Yellow Field” or the “Blue Field”, which are meaningless designations because the soccer fields are not color-coded, they are numbered. But the numbers are cleverly posted somewhere else–on the goalposts in a typesize so small that a driver cannot read them. I think this is Plano’s way of saying, “We know you are from Dallas. We do not want you here.”
