As COVID-19 has crippled our cities, parks have become the new assets of the public realm. As gathering spaces for demonstrations and protests, these public spaces can also be re-programmed to address economic recovery and benefit the public good. Renowned landscape architect Ernest Wong of site design group will help mayors explore a variety of park design solutions to encourage social distancing and healthy travel, as well as policy ideas to promote park maintenance while driving solutions for other social equity issues.
Mayors will learn about a variety of recent projects and participate in a discussion of challenges and solutions in their own cities.
