The My Park Moment photo show features 400 images of people enjoying their favorite parks. The inspiring shots, picked from thousands of submissions from across the nation (and even around the world), are on display at four outdoor locations within walking distance around the future Presidio Tunnel Tops site. Here’s how you can enjoy the show in person and online!
The large-scale show is featured at four outdoor locations. Two locations are on the Main Post not far from the Presidio Visitor Center, and the others are at Crissy Field. All locations have parking nearby with accessible walking paths from ADA parking spots.
You can start your experience at any location. Just pick up a map, and then walk, bike, or drive between them all (note: the walk is about two miles roundtrip). Restrooms are located at two sites on the Main Post.
Each location features 100 “community snapshots” from everyday parkgoers capturing moments of adventure, play, joy, fun, wonder, calm, healing, and inspiration.
Each site also features a “virtual story award” winner – this is a series of images from a single photographer portraying the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and political events of the past year. The Crissy Field West location features a Youth Pavilion with photos taken by kids 12 to 18 years old.
My Park Moment also offers two resources to help you experience the photo show:
Do you or someone you know have a photo displayed in the show? Here are the ways you can find where it’s located.
Can’t make it to the park in person? No problem! You can see all 400 images virtually online.
Building on the Community Engagement work we did behind the Presidio Tunnel Tops, we were inspired to create a way for everyone to, quite literally, picture themselves in the park. We hope many people discover the Presidio through the photo show and then return when Presidio Tunnel Tops opens in spring 2022.
The show is produced by the Partnership for the Presidio in collaboration with Photoville. The Partnership for the Presidio is comprised of the National Park Service, Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy and the Presidio Trust. Photoville is a non-profit organization that works to increase access to the art of photography and visual storytelling by producing free photo festivals and public exhibitions across the globe.
