From August 2015 to July 2016, I visited McClure Park several times a month in order to document this very busy public space. Many weeks of exploring culminated in a series of photographs surveying people, plant and wildlife, architecture and details of urban life, such as graffiti.

My walks there confirmed for me that our public parks connect us, in ways both mundane and exquisite, to what we share as a community.
