Parks and public spaces are so much more than trees and benches. They are a vast collection of stories, still in the making, told through pictures and poems, fossil records and Insta posts.
Everyone has a story to tell. Share yours.

A marathon finish. A first kiss. Winter sledding. Summer concert. Protest, picnic, celebration, self-care. Parks and public places are made of common purpose and private moments. Share yours.
Stories from partners and the public are added on a rolling basis. By submitting your story, you allow Olmsted Now to record, copy, edit, reproduce, broadcast, transmit and/or exhibit your story.
