Parks Driving Large-Scale Equitable Development

Summer Series | Equity
Parks Driving Large-Scale Equitable Development

There is broad consensus in the urban parks field that every resident deserves access to quality parks and recreation resources close to home.  But there is less understanding of how to ensure the most vulnerable residents are not pushed out of their homes and are able to benefit from the economic growth and rising real estate values that quality parks often create.  Join this session for an in-depth discussion of how cities and their philanthropic and nonprofit partners are implementing a wide variety of equitable development strategies, from homeownership to small business stabilization programs, that enable low-income and communities of color to stay and benefit from long-overdue investments in their public spaces.
