New Book about Longmont Parks

Local Longmont resident, photographer, and electric car enthusiast Luc Nadeau has a new book out, in which he visits each of our parks during various times of the year:
Portraits of Longmont Parks: Beauty in the Details
I was able to look at the book briefly and liked the way he provided a short history of how each park was named. Having lived here a while, I was surprised at how many of our parks that I had never heard of, or visited!

Picture above is from Thompson Park, June 2002.

I haven't been over there yet, but the museum currently has an exhibition with Nadeau's park photography, until May 10. Details here and here.

I believe the Library will have a copy in circulation shortly.
