In the news

Living in New York City in the years following college opened my eyes to the vital role parks play in unifying communities and enhancing the quality of life for those who are able to access them. I didn’t have much money, so Friday and Saturday nights often meant hanging out with friends at Washington Square Park, listening to the musicians and stand-up comics who performed and created in the park. If I wanted to play basketball, I often headed over to the well-known West Fourth Street Courts. Date night often consisted of a walk in East River Park, a great place for people watching and escaping from the noise and grind of the city. The experiences I had in that public space led to my commitment to bring up my family near a park, where my children could roam free, exercise, explore nature, build confidence and learn to appreciate the world around them.
