Parks We're Crushing On
Hang out in a sick park (while at your desk)
Whether it is a sweet little patch of weeds and wildflowers on the sidewalk or a vast urban park, we all have a special green place for which we hold a deep affection. Public green spaces are now—as much as they've ever been—the play stuff of some of our greatest thinkers, designers, and place-makers. And we're all so much better for it. We asked photographers from around the world to share photos of the parks which they have major crushes on and discovered these gems from Germany to British Columbia to the United Arab Emirates and more.
Tweet and instagram us #goodcitiesproject to share which park you're crushing on or tell us in the comments.
For a take on urban green spaces by the numbers, check out our latest infographic, "City Park Showdown".
The GOOD Cities Project is a five-month collaboration with Ford, exploring how we make our cities and how our cities make us. As part of the project, GOOD and Ford have commissioned cultural creatives across the country to help illuminate and celebrate the rich and vastly diverse points of view that make up each city's individual character. Each week, we will be exploring attributes that we believe are fundamental to living meaningful urban lives.
