Credits: None available.

Associates: $30.00
Members: $40.00
Standard: $50.00
Students: $0.00


The economics of parks is ever more important: educating clients on the costs of creating public realm; developing funding strategies to build; balancing revenue generation with creating respite; planning for governance, operations, and maintenance to preserve investments for future generations; and valuing design.

Please complete a brief evaluation of this Online Learning presentation.

Learning Objectives:
  • Hear methods of educating clients on public realm development costs and learn from case studies how that has been achieved.
  • Learn from case studies how revenue generation has supported operations and maintenance costs, and where the right balance has been struck and where it has not.
  • Learn from governance models how best to plan for and preserve investment in the public realm.
  • Discuss the value of design and how it can be retained in the face of the temptation to create “things to do” and demand for “economically self-sustaining” public realm.

I really appreciated this session, the sharing of successes and that each client is different, each community different, but many solutions and opportunities to consider for funding. I also think operations and maintaining parks is so often overlooked, and what could make a park the most successful long term but to have those up front important discussions.
