Parks have numerous benefits for individuals and communities. Across the United States, efforts are underway to ensure that everyone has access to the restorative power of high-quality parks through large- and small-scale transformations that benefit local residents, economies, and the environment. Creative partnerships and new ideas for existing spaces are essential components of these efforts. This interactive session will highlight ULI’s new research on innovative park spaces that were created through public/private partnerships and the repurposing of outdated automobile infrastructure, such as parking lots, highway underpasses, and travel lanes.
