Why Attend

Build community in the urban park space

The Summer Series will include 13+ events over the span of two weeks, starting June 24 through June 25, 2021.

It will be an interactive mix of virtual programming and community building for urban park leaders. Conversations will focus on how cities are reckoning with racial justice, building an inclusive workforce, driving an equitable economic recovery, and leveraging parks and public spaces to connect people and create stronger, more resilient communities.

Connect with park leaders across sectors 

Much like the makeup of City Parks Alliance, the Summer Series will feature a wide range of national and local leaders focused on improving urban parks and green space through their work.
