Fri 10/18, 5-7pm, SALON, co-presented with the Providence Preservation Society: Partnership for Providence Parks (P3) Director Wendy Nilsson along  with several P3 partners, on “Strengthening and Connecting Communities through Parks and Play,” part of the 2013 PPS Symposium, “Not Always Easy: Building the New Urban Experience.” In 1903, inspired by Olmsted’s Emerald Necklace in Boston, the Providence Parks Department proposed a linear system of interconnected parks and boulevards.  One year ago the Partnership for Providence Parks  was formed to help realize this vision.  In collaboration with the Parks Department, the Partnership cultivates volunteer groups and provides resources to them so that Providence’s parks become vibrant, healthy, playful spaces that reflect the spirit of each neighborhood.  Across the city over 30 volunteer groups and countless community partners are working to transform over 95 parks into community hubs, nature conservancies and places for children and families to play and explore. While each of these parks represents the needs and identity of the surrounding neighborhoods, they are also part of a city-wide effort to physically and socially connect communities through 1100 acres of green space and develop a coherent, cohesive message about how Providence values civic engagement, public/private partnerships, and the importance of homepage green space to our quality of life.
