Webinar: City Park Trends and Practices

Watch a video presentation by The Trust for Public Land

Dog parks are super popular, as are splash pads, pickleball courts and community gardens. These amenities and many others are popping up in city parks from coast to coast.

The Trust for Public Land collects and makes available data on parks in the largest 100 U.S. cities through its ParkScore interactive tool and City Park Facts publication. In this AARP webinar, Charlie McCabe, director of TPL's Center for City Park Excellence, and Ali Hiple, a program manager for the center, talk about evaluating parks, emerging trends and best practices for creating city parks and public spaces.
