Parks and recreation systems have evolved in remarkable ways over the past two decades. No longer just playgrounds and ballfields, parks and open spaces have become recognized as essential green infrastructure with the potential to contribute to community resiliency and sustainability.
To capitalize on this potential, the parks and recreation system planning process must evolve as well. In his book, Parks and Recreation System Planning, landscape architect David Barth provides a new, step-by-step approach to creating parks systems that generate greater economic, social, and environmental benefits. He will be joined by Kate Parmelee, Strategic Initiatives Director, City Manager’s Office, City of Port St. Lucie and Carlos Perez, Principal, Perez Planning + Design, Atlanta.
