As public dollars for parks have decreased, public/private partnerships (P3s) have emerged to fill the gap. This session will explore and debate the P3 role in park funding, policy, and operations; how to manage issues of privatization, equity, and commercialization; and the impact of P3s on park design and development. Learning Objectives - Learn about the evolution of public-private park partnerships of the 1980s through today. - Understand the decision making process and impact of P3s on park design and development. - Understand the landscape architect’s role in P3 models. - Explore the public funding landscape and implications for P3s in the future.
