Open Space Dialogues: Money Doesn't Grow on Trees

Parks provide multiple benefits in dense urban environments, from recreation to mental health to sustainability and resilience. But staying on top of daily wear and tear and addressing the structural deficiencies of aging infrastructure need to be funded. How should we pay to create and maintain our public realm? In this Open Space Dialogues panel, park practitioners and advocates from New York City and beyond will explore what options exist for ensuring parks in all five boroughs have a sustainable financial future.

  • What are innovative funding strategies applicable to NYC parks?
  • What lessons can we learn from cities with unusual parks funding streams?
  • How do you build an equitable approach into park funding in all neighborhoods?
