The 16th Annual Parks & Greenspace Conference, Connecting with Parks, will explore how parks and greenspaces bridge gaps between individuals, communities, political jurisdictions, and ecosystems to become places of regional importance.
Whether a transportation corridor such as a green street, a linear park spanning several neighborhoods, or a network of parks designed to capture rainwater, our parks and greenspace serve a vitally important role in connecting us to the environment, to our neighborhoods, to commerce, and to each other.
