Program Leader: Foster Brown
The oral history team will be collecting your stories at Garfield Park Nature Center in February. We know that thousands of families have made memories for nearly 100 years of Cleveland Metroparks existence. We want to record, in your own words, your memories of Cleveland Metroparks and what the parks have meant to you. You might even be able to share some stories that your parents and grandparents related to you about their experiences with Cleveland Metroparks.
We will be setting up 20 – 25 minute interviews with the public. We encourage you to call ahead and schedule your interview with a friendly Cleveland Metroparks staff member or volunteer. If you have photos that capture your Cleveland Metroparks memories, we would love to see them and possibly scan them for our archives! We are also curious to see if you have old Cleveland Metroparks giveaways or posters that we could photograph.
Call the historical interpretation office at 440-786-8530 to schedule your interview. We will also accept walk-ups if time slots are available.
