"What's Past is Prologue"

One of the forces which led to parks becoming an integral part of cities' infrastructure in the mid and late nineteenth century in the USA was a wide-spread perception that they attributed to alleviating disease contagion and epidemics. Six strategies will be explained that were effective in this successful movement that appear to have relevance to today's context. Four of them relate to positioning parks so parks are recognized as a component to be included in the multifaceted effort to address the obesity epidemic: conceptual alignment, cost effectiveness, associative positioning, and psychological positioning. The other two pertain to the tactical use of science to support advocacy and the need to secure influential champions. CEUs: 0.1

A Systems Approach to Assessing Parks

What makes a park successful depends heavily on neighborhood context, and assessing a parks system is an important step in making equitable improvements and creating a Complete Parks system. This means making decisions based on data about people’s entire experience with parks—getting to a park, spending time there, safety and maintenance, proximity to quality schools, affordable housing, local businesses, and key services, and more. The Complete Parks approach has immense potential to create an inclusive parks system and simultaneously address an array of planning, public health, and environmental issues. This session highlights the benefits of collaborating with other government agencies and community-based groups to conduct a meaningful parks system assessment. Speakers will present sample indicators and metrics, provide guidance for multidisciplinary groups to collect and analyze the data, and share possible strategies for creating a Complete Parks system.
