In celebration of National Selfie Day on Monday, Montgomery Parks announced the installation of 16 new selfie stands at 13 scenic park locations.
The wooden stands have two different ledges that allow for pictures to be taken at different heights for individual selfies or group photos.
“While there is no shortage of beautiful scenery throughout our 424 parks, we decided to highlight some particularly breathtaking spots,” said Kirsten Hein, parks activation manager, in a press release. “We hope visitors will enjoy exploring these areas and we wanted to make it easier for them to capture the perfect selfie to remember their experience, and to share with friends.”
