Urban Green: Innovative Parks for Resurgent Cities

Urban Green explores new and innovative ways for "built out" cities to add much-needed parkland. Peter Harnik explains why urban parks are needed, then addresses how much parkland is truly possible and where specific investment can go. He offers a variety of examples and practical solutions, giving helpful guidance to those vested in making cities more beautiful, sociable, ecologically sound, and successful.

"Urban Green is part reference manual, part guidebook and part inspiration. It provides an unprecedented look at the re-greening of urban America. From rail-trails to rooftops to landfills, Peter Harnik shows us how to find and fund green spaces for the next century."—Edward T. McMahon, Charles E. Fraser Chair for Sustainable Development and a Senior Resident Fellow at the Urban Land Institute
