Washington Park:
The Community and the Environment

Our initial observations of Washington Park seem to express the same sentiment, that the space is underutilized. The numerous residents we have already conversed with seem to share the same feelings. We feel that documenting the activity happening in the park will lead us to better understand how the community relates to the environment. In doing so we also aim to discover how the community has related to the park over time. What caused Washington Park to change from the social space it once was to what it has become today? These are the issues on which we plan to focus our attention.
