Northpark is hosting a photography-based social media project on behalf of communities practicing social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic. The "Northpark’s Got Heart – Communities #ComeTogether" photo project will use submitted photos to create a large-scale, heart-shaped mural that will go on display at Northpark after the social distancing period ends.
All of Northpark's social media platforms will host activities such as digital scavenger hunts, pet photography, coloring pages, dress-your-best from home photos and more.
Northpark’s Facebook, Instagram, TikTok and Twitter pages will each feature content based around a theme each week. For more information, visit visitnorthpark.com.
