This session explores the creative fitting process of two resilient parks—FDR Park in Philadelphia, and Magnuson Park in Seattle—that leverage nature-based solutions to provide a network of benefits including public health, ecosystem functions, restoring economic value, and connecting individuals with nature.
- Explore methods of finding the programmatic balance to create win-win resiliency solutions with diverse communities, public agencies, partners, and stakeholder groups with competing interests.
- Recognize the interconnected nature of public and ecological health and how public open spaces contribute to overall community wellness and resiliency.
- Discover how to mitigate the impacts of a changing climate—higher temperatures, more frequent flooding—using public open spaces.
- Identify opportunities that generate revenue to offset operations and maintenance costs, encourage strong coalitions of park stewards, and impact the city-wide economy by attracting visitors and vendors.
