Pocket Park Toolkit
This Pocket Park Toolkit was created to help any individual, group, or organization interested in supporting their community by building parks. Through research, discussion, and interviews with experts in the fields of community engagement and organizing, park funding, design, and ongoing park operations and maintenance, this Toolkit provides practical guidance for both the novice community leader and the seasoned government employee. It is geared toward a reader with knowledge about parks and their benefits, but still looking for some clear guidance on how to get started. This Toolkit provides a snapshot of successful strategies and case studies partnered with checklists and templates to empower folks to work with their neighbors to build more parks and stronger, healthier, and more connected communities.
This project was made possible by the generous support of The Rosalinde and Arthur Gilbert Foundation.
