Chloe and Rosetta

Chloe, a new resident to LA, came to the Kite Festival with her friend Rosetta. “Parks make me feel connected to LA because I can physically see the area and the landscape around me, which helps me to feel present,” she said. “Being outdoors and having a moment of peace is revitalizing and important to me. Sometimes being in the sun and reading, writing or just sitting there is the perfect thing to do. I live in a busy area and I do wish there were more green spaces close-by. I would love to be able to walk to one or two. Parks allow me to not feel alone while still having time to myself. I feel closer to the city when I am in proximity to other people.”
