AARP Livable CommunitiesInformation and inspiration for local leaders

Lacking any amenities, Roosevelt Park in downtown Camden, New Jersey, was being used more as a walk-through area than a destination. A pop-up project enlivened the space through low-cost, high-impact, flexible placemaking strategies to make the park appealing and inspire the city's future improvements. Learn more about the project from the AARP Pop-Up Demonstration Tool Kit. »
