The Public Realm and Community Health
Connections are key. The connections between successful parks, streetscapes, and open spaces are a vital ingredient in creating a healthy and vibrant city. In an age of so-called “Nature Deficit Disorder” and far too many technological distractions, people crave spaces that provide time to decompress and socialize. In turn, comfortable places within the public realm attract crowds seeking connection and interaction. The success of these spaces creates tangible social, environmental, and economic impacts on our communities. Our panel will discuss these impacts and provide examples from across the country of successes and near-misses in the creation of these needed amenities.
