What is Steem Park?
“Steem Park” is an interactive community garden in the heart of Brooklyn, New York. Located within the historic Herbert von King Park: Steem Park is a pop-up installation that will be used to host Steemit meetups, local community events, workshops and dozens of activities throughout the year.

Good For Community, Good for Steemit
This new neighborhood hotspot in the heart of Brooklyn will act as a colorful and dynamic billboard for the Steemit community. We @hitheryon believe that this physical design project is an important and exciting proof of concept for Steem and Steemit. We want to build something physical, lasting and impactful with cryptocurrency. Tens of thousands of people will visit Steem Park this summer. Our team will host Steemit workshops and events for the purpose of onboarding community members and activists to the Steemit platform (this includes park visitors, park representatives, volunteers, local residents and more!)
Upvotes and donations will translate directly to funding for furniture, events, park maintenance, beautification and restoration for a neighborhood in need. This project is about discovering new ways of using Steem for social good!
Schedule & Progress
Stay tuned for weekly funding and design progress updates. We’ll be posting updates and progress snapshots every step of the way. Later on, we’ll present how we can develop different sub-projects such as video documentation, exhibition, a book, and so on as we meet higher funding goals.
