The Power of Parks in Community Healing and Development

Show Notes

Carolyn McKnight is the Superintendent of BREC. If you’re a fan of the TV Show, Parks and Recreation, this episode will give you insight into the heart and mind of Leslie Knope — parks can play an powerful role in community healing, development and unity. In this episode we explore how parks can address issues like hypertension in children, how mobile parks can bring fun, education and exercise to underserved communities and how parks for seniors can provide adults with the activity and creativity that they may have lost touch with over the years.
