Webinar: Creating Parks and Public Spaces for People of All Ages

Watch a video presentation by 8 80 Cities

Great parks and public spaces are places where everyone, regardless of age or ability, feels a sense of belonging. But many parks aren’t designed, maintained, and programmed in a way that meets the unique needs of children and older adults.

Creating Parks and Public Spaces for People of All Ages: A Step-by-Step Guide seeks to change that. Created by AARP, 8 80 Cities, and The Trust for Public Land, this guide is a resource for community leaders and residents interested in building more inclusive public spaces.

This webinar covers best practices and principles for creating age-friendly parks and public spaces and equips participants with new ways of developing innovative strategies for improvement and new tools, including The Trust for Public Land's ParkServe, a platform for tracking and mapping urban park access.
