Park Master Planning for Climate Resilience
Rachel Banner

Extreme storms, aging stormwater infrastructure, and hotter summers are having a profound effect on our communities and the parks and green space that support them. Parks can provide additional safeguards to our community's exposure to climate change, but prioritizing climate resilience in parks when there are so many demands on our park system is a challenge. This session will outline strategies for park master planning that unveil the climate risks to your park system and provide strategies to prioritize climate resilience strategies that align community priorities for parks, recreation, and play. The program will present case studies from three different community types -a dense, industrial city, a suburb, and a rural-ish community -all planning for climate resilience in their park systems.

Parks as Critical Infrastructure: How to Quantify and Message their Equity, Health, Climate, and Economic Benefits
Taj Schottland, Ayanna Williams, and Jennifer Clinton

There is growing awareness of the structural inequities in our communities. We now know that parks serving non-white populations are, on average, half the size as parks in white neighborhoods yet serve five times as many people. Similarly, low-income, non-white neighborhoods are disproportionately vulnerable to flooding and extreme heat because they lack adequate green space. To change this, we must transform the public's perception of parks as nice-to-have amenities to must-have infrastructure. Using case studies from around the country, presenters will share how to effectively communicate the benefits of parks, attract advocates, and build support. They will share examples of how parks generate significant benefits, new research that quantifies carbon capture, and resources that position green infrastructure in parks as a multi-benefit community solution. Attendees will learn how to advocate for parks as critical solutions to the most pressing challenges facing our communities.
