Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space

"A community’s physical form, rather than its land uses, is its most intrinsic and enduring characteristic." [Katz, EPA] This blog focuses on place and placemaking and all that makes it work--historic preservation, urban design, transportation, asset-based community development, arts & cultural development, commercial district revitalization, tourism & destination development, and quality of life advocacy--along with doses of civic engagement and good governance watchdogging.

Infographic on "best" city parks

Fairmont Hotels has released an infographic featuring some of the world's best urban parks, including examples from NYC, Montreal, Vancouver, San Francisco, London, Beijing, Barcelona, and Singapore.

Speaking of graphic design and information presentation, it makes me realize that park systems at all levels should create similar kinds of infographics on their parks as a way to market and promote parks to new and different audiences.
