The AGBC Parks Project

Documenting how parks are used citywide

City parks add a much needed splash of nature to an otherwise rough city, and they each attain their own identity as the neighborhood around them learns to use the park space. This directory of parks began with basic information like size, location, and date founded, but there is so much more to know about how a park is used by its community. Some parks are community gardens and some are densely-wooded hiking areas, but each of them add to the surrounding neighborhood by remaining a space that will stay open and available to anyone.

We want to hear your stories of your local park so we can build an on-going history of each park that goes beyond measuring how many acres it covers or who it was named after. Find your park and let us know in the comments or via email about your favorite park!
