Parks, Public Spaces and Green Spaces: What’s Their Future?
Lecture presented on October 24, 2018
As places to have fun, relax, or commune with nature, parks and public spaces play an essential role in the quality of urban life. Sometimes neglected or, on the contrary, sought after, these sites are not always as protected as they should be. From creating more pocket parks to managing large parks, how can we plan for the future of this living heritage that is so crucial to residents and the urban life of our city?
