City Parks Forum Case Studies
APA's City Parks Forum project began has been fortunate to play a role in helping people better their communities through urban parks.
The stories below began as case problems identified by our mayoral fellows at one of our six symposia. Using our program faculty expertise, grant funding, and most of all, considerable community resources, our grantees have addressed their park challenges in a variety of ways. Common to all their efforts, though, are the themes of public-private partnerships, community engagement, leadership support, and using parks to address other urban challenges.
The City Parks Forum salute the vision and tireless effort of these communities and hope these projects can serve as examples for others.
