Parks and the Health of Great Cities

Original post made by Resident, Another Palo Alto neighborhood, on Sep 10, 2008

Program details and online registration are now available for "Body and Soul: Parks and the Health of Great Cities." This event will encourage new ways of thinking about the relationship between people, their cities, and their parks. The National Parks Conservation Association is a proud sponsor of this event.

As our touchstone for the urban parks movement, Frederick Law Olmsted's grasp of the intertwining of the designed landscape with human health, scenic beauty, civic development, and social equity
continues to inspire best practices for parks.

How will we manage our parks in the face of global warming, and how can today's best science shape management decisions?

Palo Alto needs open space, not more housing developments.
