For project space, my group and I decided on taking an observation of parks. We each went to different parks located in different areas. I went to three different parks, Gates Canyon Park, Granada Hills Recreation Center (Petit Park), and Lake Balboa. Gates Canyon Park is located in Calabasas. I went on Saturday around one in the afternoon. The park was overwhelmed with people. There were families left and right. Something that I noticed right away however was the ethnicity of the people, there seemed to be only a majority of white people. Plus, all the people that were there seemed to have an acquaintance with one another. The next park I went to was Petit Park, located in Granada Hills. I went on a Thursday afternoon, around 12. Here the people I saw were different from the ones I saw in Gates Canyon Park. I saw a numerous amount of ethnicities. I believe the difference of ethnicities was due to a library that is located just a few steps away from the park. The third park I went to was Lake Balboa. I visited this park on a Tuesday around 10 in the morning. This is a beautiful park that many go to for a pathway to run, plus its very peaceful. Here just like at Petit Park I saw a wide range of ethnicities. Most of the people here seemed very calm, maybe since it is a very peaceful environment with less traffic than most places. These three parks had something in common and a difference with one another. I believe that each park has a main focus on the style due to where it is located. For example, the Gates Canton Park located in Calabasas had a very different look at style to it than what the other two parks had to offer. I believe that the area of where certain parks are located play a huge role on how parks are constructed and seen. They don’t just serve as a place for families or a place to take a step away from the world but the parks serve a role in the community, to most it’s a home away from home.
