    10 Parks that Changed America tells the story of 10 visionaries who took open canvases of God-forsaken land, and transformed them into serene spaces that offer city dwellers a respite from the hustle and bustle of urban life. From the elegant squares of Savannah, Georgia, to a park built over a freeway in Seattle, to the more recent High Line in New York, each story introduces the heroes who brought these parks to life, and the villains who preferred to exploit the land for private enterprise.


    Discover the evolution of our nation’s city parks, and learn the history of landscape architecture – an American-born art in which human beings try their best to mimic nature. 

    The Ohio Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects and the Friends of the Metro Parks are jointly hosting a free public viewing of The PBS film 10 Parks That Changed America.  On August 24, join us at Scioto Audubon Metro Park for a virtual tour of 10 of the most influential parks in America. The showing will begin at sunset, roughly 8:15 PM, so bring a blanket or chairs and your popcorn and enjoy a movie under the stars!
